The House and Senate Conference Committee has been named and is meeting now to determine its final FY16 budget. The Network is continuing its advocacy for its priorities and asks you to join in communicating with your legislators directly. The Conference Committee includes one Western MA legislator, Vice Chair of House Ways and Means Stephen Kulik (additional members are listed below). It is useful to contact your senator and representative and ask them to weigh in with all the Conferees about Network priorities! You can find your legislators by clicking here.
The Network requests the following:
This year’s House Conference Committee members are Representatives Brian Dempsey (D-Haverhill, Chair of House Ways and Means), Stephen Kulik (D-Worthington, Vice Chair of House Ways and Means), and Todd Smola (R-Warren, Minority Member of House Ways and Means). The Senate Conference Committee members are Senators Karen Spilka (D-Ashland, Chair of Senate Ways and Means), Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett, Vice Chair of Senate Ways and Mean), and Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth, Minority Member of Senate Ways and Means).
Thank you for your advocacy!
