Mass Fiscal Explanation

Mass Fiscal supports a yes vote because we believe this amendment increases transparency. In order for legislators to do their job, they need time to review legislation and make informed decisions when they are expected to vote. Giving them a simple 24 hours to read a bill should be expected. However, like some national politicians, legislative leadership believes you need to pass bills in order to find out what’s in them.
