We did it!
Thanks to your calls, emails, tweets and testimony, we were able to stop the Baker Administration from pushing through the most sweeping reforms to Massachusetts health care
without any input from the public. The Legislature will now move forward with our efforts to vet these proposals in a formal, transparent manner.
Working with our colleagues in the House, we were also able to create a dedicated reserve for Committee for Public Counsel Services (CPCS)
in the FY18 budget, to support the important work of our bar advocates and ensure access to justice for all.
I'm also proud to report that the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act
is now law. Everyone deserves a safe, healthy work environment, and that includes pregnant and nursing workers. Women are an important part of our economic success, and we must do all we can to make sure our laws reflect the everyday reality facing our workforce.
