Representative John J. Mahoney, D-Worcester, joined his colleagues in the Massachusetts House of Representatives on Wednesday, June 11, in passing legislation which would expand opportunities and services for military personnel, veterans and their families.
Signifying the commitment that the House has to our Commonwealth’s education system, I was pleased to see that Education and Unrestricted General Government Aid was increased $159 million above the FY2016 budget. Notably, this includes an increase of $55 in per pupil aid, which is more than double the guarantee from FY2016.
The announcement that General Electric will be moving its headquarters to Boston marks a great victory for the state of Massachusetts. We will now be home to a multinational and multibillion dollar conglomerate with world leading technology divisions in transportation, energy management, aviation, pharmaceuticals, software development, health care and engineering.
