Help for seniors:
- property tax relief a la Prop 2-1/2
- keep MA senior prescription program in place to fill gaps left by new federal benefit
And now to welfare: more welfare recipients should be working (gee, have you ever heard that one before?).
And to auto insurance reform. Must reject special interests (which ones again?). Sounds like this is a proposal to get rid of state-mandated uniform rates. We’ll look for the specifics on this one.
On to natural resources. Oceans "should not be up for grabs like some wild west land rush." Will file a bill – possibly to kill the wind farm? Keep your eye on this one too.
Re-upping the merger of Highway Department and Turnpike Authority. And will divert savings to toll relief for central and western MA residents. Hard to argue with this – they’ve been paying for the Big Dig which they never use.
