RETIREE LEGISLATIVE PACKAGE FILED

14 Proposals For 2015-16 Session

JANUARY 16, 2015: The Association has completed the filing process for its 2015-16 Legislative package. Under joint House-Senate rules, the deadline was Friday, January 16, 2015 at 5:00 pm.

All told, fourteen separate bills make up the Association’s proposal for the new session that began on January 7th and lasts through the first Tuesday in January 2017. Bills will shortly be assigned numbers and be assigned to various committees for review.

The Mass. Constitution requires each proposal to receive a public hearing before the committee to which the proposal has been assigned. We anticipate the hearing process to begin later this winter, once legislators have been assigned to their respective committees.

A full report on the Association’s legislative package, including bill sponsors, will be included within the March 2015 edition of the Voice.
