BOSTON, August 3, 2015—Massachusetts state leaders today formally requested an independent, comprehensive review of the state’s criminal justice system in a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice and the Pew Center on the States. The letter, signed by Governor Charlie Baker, Senate President Stan Rosenberg, Speaker of the House Robert Deleo, and Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court Ralph Gants, requests technical assistance from the Justice Reinvestment Initiative to “use a data-driven approach to continue to improve criminal justice outcomes.”

BOSTON – Senate President Stanley C. Rosenberg (D-Amherst) and House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo (D-Winthrop) joined their colleagues in the Legislature to take final action on the FY16 budget. These veto overrides will enhance support for Massachusetts residents and municipalities, and ensure that local programs, education funding, and economic development initiatives are well funded by the legislature.

First and foremost, we believe that FERC should suspend the current environmental scoping process and withdraw the Notice of Intent that was issued on June 30, 2015. In order to have a credible and respected regulatory process, we believe that it is incumbent upon FERC to postpone this current scoping process. We believe that it should be re-started with the issuance of a new Notice of Intent, extending the public comment period for at least 60 days in light of the July 24th Resource Reports. A new schedule of scoping hearings should be issued to allow for meaningful public comment during this period.

“With Pope Francis helping to refocus the world's attention on climate change, we believe it is essential for us to act right now, at least on the key issues of adapting to the potential changes and being ready for them,” said Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst). “Senator Pacheco’s bill once again puts Massachusetts in a leadership role on a critical issue. This bill creates a proactive, long-term strategy to deal with the realities of our changing climate.”

“We have serious concerns about many of the governor’s vetoes, particularly related to education, where he has cut programs ranging from early childhood to colleges and universities. Given the increasing importance of education in closing the income gap and giving kids a decent chance in a highly competitive economy, cuts to these programs are short-sighted at best. The Senate will take a hard look at these and other cuts as we consider these vetoes.”
