|Dear Friends, |
It is my hope that you had a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah and joyous holiday season.
In the legislature we have completed much work but there is so much yet to do in this legislative session. As the new year begins, we reflect on what this past year has brought us and for what we are thankful. We addressed healthcare reform where I co-sponsored bills to address rising costs, negligent caretakers and risky insurance practices.
I filed bipartisan legislation to improve access and affordability of cancer clinical trials across the state. We took up the issue of graduate student loan debt that is affecting our children and families and debated telecommunication regulations for the coming year. These are just a few of the many important topics taken up this session. Be sure to read more about my legislation in the Legislative Spotlight section.
In the past year, I've worked to bring back significant funding to this district for various programs and projects, including infrastructure improvements, environmental protection grants, public school aid and much more. I've also worked to maintain fiscal discipline in our state budget and only spend within our means – and not waste your hard earned tax dollars.
The Spring 2018 session will be a busy one and I am looking forward to working with my colleagues to continue improving our great Commonwealth.
I have had the pleasure of meeting various constituents from our district at my office hours and at State House visits. I appreciate hearing from you on the things that matter to our district and our Commonwealth.
It is an honor to serve as your State Senator.
As always, please feel free to reach out to my office directly at 617-722-1555 or email Richard.Ross@masenate.gov.
