The 74rd Citizens’ Legislative Seminar will be held on Tuesday, April 28 and Wednesday, April 29. This is a great opportunity for residents to get a firsthand look at how the legislative process works, and have a better understanding of state government. Senator Brownsberger encourages his constituents to apply to attend the seminar.
Unlike previous economic recoveries, revenues aren’t growing as fast as the state has budgeted. For the next couple of years, this will have an impact both on state spending–we have to work very hard to stretch available dollars–and on how revenues are estimated when state budgets are built.
Senator Brownsberger: the MBTA suffered huge delays across all service platforms in both recent storms. I would suggest you and transportation committee members to take a T ride for each line (Green/Red/Silver/Orange/Blue) to gain first-hand experiences. Most commuters cannot afford wasting hours of their life each day on an outdated transportation system.
Part-time unpaid internships in Senator Brownsberger’s office will be available this summer. Internships are open to undergraduate college students and to high school students who will have completed their sophomore year. The application deadline is Friday, March 6, 2015.
