The following is a statement from Senate President Karen E. Spilka on the Fiscal Year 2021 Budget Conference Committee Report:
"I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to the Ways & Means Chairs, Senator Rodrigues and Representative Michlewitz, as well as the members of the Ways & Means committee, especially Senate Vice Chair Friedman and Assistant Vice Chair Lewis, for the hard work they put into crafting the Fiscal Year 2021 budget under very difficult circumstances.
This budget makes important investments in key areas to steady the Commonwealth and assist our most vulnerable residents as we continue to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. I am also thrilled that Massachusetts will be taking a vital step to protect reproductive rights with the inclusion of the Senate ROE provision, which has been preserved in the final budget."
