House and Senate negotiators approved a tax package today which I am pleased to support.

People heating with oil in Massachusetts in 1978 to 1981 faced dramatic price increases. Many apparently sacrificed home comfort to control their heating bills.

Overall, I am very pleased with this year’s budget and I feel that it reflects many of my stated priorities.
