NORTHAMPTON, MA – Massachusetts Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst) wrote today to congressional leaders of the U.S. House and Senate Judiciary Committees in support of the federal Equality Act (S.1858/ H.R. 3185.) In a letter to the chairs of the committees, Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Congressman Robert Goodlatte (R-VA), Rosenberg said passage of the bill “is critical to ensuring that all LGBT Americans are protected from discrimination.”

BOSTON - In a letter sent to University of Massachusetts President Marty Meehan, Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst) requested that UMass Trustees revisit a fee increase in light of additional money for the UMass system provided in the budget. The Trustees recently approved a fee increase of up to 5% for the upcoming academic year. Their proposal would mean an increase of about $900 for in-state undergraduate students at UMass Amherst. “The administration at UMass has been working hard to rein in costs and improve efficiency, but I’ve talked to students at UMass who are working two or three part-time jobs to scrape together enough money to stay in school. For them, $900 could put their future at the university in jeopardy. I hope that by working together, we can find a way to help these students.” said Rosenberg, adding “This is about income inequality. Working families are remortgaging their homes and spending their retirement savings to send their kids to school. We need to ensure we’re making it easier for them, not harder.”

In an interview with The Springfield Republican/MassLive.com, Rosenberg said the state has known for years that there would be a capacity problem, and there are other steps the gas company can take to address it, such as plugging gas leaks, building natural gas storage facilities and being more aggressive with pushing customers towards energy conservation. "The question I posed to them is can you show us the planning you've done independent of Kinder Morgan?" Rosenberg said. "Kinder Morgan's only been talked about for a couple of years. People have known about infrastructure problems for much longer than just a couple of years."
