Governor Charlie Baker has signed a bill giving preference to American Veterans in public housing decisions.
The new law is a reminder that politics is a long game. In 2014, MassFiscal sent out millions of informational mailers telling constituents about legislators who voted against the opportunity to give veterans preference for public housing.
Fiscal responsibly means making sure limited resources are allocated appropriately, and we believe putting those who have sacrificed so much to our nation first is both appropriate and responsible.
MassFiscal is pleased to have played a role in this policy development, and specifically that the legislature finally acted on this issue after our advocacy efforts in 2014. We will continue to advocate for appropriate, responsible spending going forward. (Picture from www.twitter.com/massgovernor)
