Welcome to the Online Home of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance!
We've got another new ad airing now on WBZ. It talks about the work we're doing to help you hold your legislators accountable for promoting policies that are fiscally responsible and lead to better government. As always, if you want to help us continue that work, please chip in whatever you can!
Thanks to an Independent Spirit on Beacon Hill, Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance will celebrate the Fourth of July all month long!
After weeks of waffling, Republicans and Democrats came together to pave the way for substantive reform at the MBTA. As part of the state budget, the legislature suspended the arcane and burdensome Pacheco Law for three years.
The Pacheco Law is a darling of union bosses, as it makes contracting out any function performed by a state employee nearly impossible. Without it, Governor Baker and his team can evaluate and assess the work done at the T to determine how and who can most efficiently deliver services.
You can now check out our radio ad campaign in support of Gov. Charlie Baker's bi-partisan plan to reform the MBTA airing this week on The Howie Carr Show, the Dan Rea Show on WBZ, the Jon Keller Update on WBZ, the Jim Polito Show on WTAG, and the Jordan Levy Show on WTAG. The ad touches on the continued need for MBTA reforms and calls on listeners to call their state senators in support of the Governor's plan.
