There are a vast number of bills subject to hearing next week – way too many for me to post about.
If you go to http://www.mass.gov/… you will see there are pages of bills scheduled. Probably it is lobbyists who mostly pay attention to particular bills, not citizens.
However, what happens on the first of May will REALLY determine, for example, if Massachusetts participation in the Northeast Regional Green House Gas initiative really happens.
It will also affect whether seniors get property tax relief, and how the new health care law will work…and much much more.
Like most of you, I have to work. I have to be very selective about attending hearings and am mostly monitoring issues affecting child welfare law, since I cannot do it all.
