Governor Baker signed the $48.07 billion budget for Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) that was passed unanimously by the Legislature earlier this month. This budget maintains fiscal responsibility, does not cut services, and makes targeted investments to address emerging needs, safeguard the health and wellness of the most vulnerable populations and ensure residents will benefit equitably as the state recovers from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
FY22 budget includes local aid for Franklin and Medway
The FY22 budget included language from Rep. Roy's bill establishing the 250th American Revolution Anniversary Commission. You can find the exact language by clicking here.
This commission will allow Massachusetts to adequately prepare for the anniversary and to compete for national opportunities and decisions such as bringing the Tall Ships to Boston in 2026 or the World Cup to Foxborough in 2026.
Massachusetts could also be eligible for federal grants that will provide lasting economic, cultural and historical benefit to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
