Senator Rausch: State House Briefing - Part 3, Chapter 1 (January 31, 2023)

I hope 2023 is off to a wonderful start for you and your loved ones. The new legislative session is underway, and my team and I are working hard to advance the policies that matter most to our communities and our district. As we launch into our third term, I want to extend a warm welcome to the four new towns in our district: Bellingham, Dover, Medfield, and Milford.  

January is bill filing month, and over the past several weeks, I filed more than five dozen bills to support families, enhance reproductive rights and equity, provide better access to post-pregnancy mental health care and pediatric appointments, reduce plastics and greenhouse gas emissions, protect public health, improve voting access and elections infrastructure, promote governmental transparency and efficiency, and more. This is the work I was sent to Beacon Hill to do; I am both honored to do it and proud to share it with you here. 

February will bring debates about Senate, House, and Joint Rules, and once the rules are finalized, we’ll get committee assignments for the term. The clerks of each chamber will assign the bills to the various committees and our formal review of filed legislation will begin.  

In this newsletter, you’ll find a roundup of our legislative priorities for the 2023-2024 session, local event highlights and town election information, and upcoming Black History Month events happening throughout our district.  

For real-time updates, please follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you are a constituent and need assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me and my team via phone (617) 722-1555, email, or attend upcoming office hours. We are here to help.   

I wish you and your loved ones a happy, healthy, and successful new year.  

Yours in service,  

Senator Becca Rausch
