What's Going On

Newsletter: March 21
Small BIG victories!!! The Safe Driving Bill H3285 got an extension to May 15, 2014. This is good news and means lots of work to come! And the Trust Act was voted out of the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security. Unfortunately the In-State Tuition Bill (H1078) did not have the same fate at the Committee on Higher Education, and was sent to "study". We plead with Governor Deval Patrick to take leadership on this matter and act before he leaves office to give bright young people a chance to guide us all into a better future. Read more Read More.
