Rep. Carol McGuire
Representative Carol McGuire apologizes for neglecting her newsletter due to some personal issues this spring. Instead, she has prepared a summary of the 2017 session. She expects to write it in three parts: the bills she sponsored, the work of her standing committee, and a review of the house sessions since the previous post. See the link for a review of Rep. McGuire’s bills for 2017.
Executive Departments and Administration (ED&A) heard a number of bills on Wednesday, February 1st. A short session of the full House was held on Thursday, with a number of debates. The highlight of the day was a bill to adopt Atlantic Time (with no clock change for Daylight Savings Time), if Massachusetts does the same.
With no House session this week, several bills were worked on in the Executive Departments and Administration committee. An older newsletter has been linked at the bottom of the article.
A summary of committee review for Senate bills plus following House Bills through the Senate. At the bottom, there are links to the previous two newsletters.
