As the extended legislative session continues, we're still awaiting conference committee decisions on a few major bills on policing and economic development. However, we have been able to win some big victories in the past month!
Earlier this week, the House and the Senate sent a bill to Governor Baker's desk that would make thousands of more Massachusetts workers eligible for additional unemployment funds. I was proud to join 100 of my colleagues in the House and Senate in support of this bill, and I'm glad Governor Baker honored the needs of our Commonwealth by signing this bill into law. Check out more about this story here.
