BOSTON – In honor of Sunshine Week 2019, the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance has kicked off their latest educational campaign with a video series highlighting issues of openness and transparency in the Massachusetts Legislature.
“The leadership of the Massachusetts legislature frequently struggles with openness and transparency in their Chambers, so we feel it’s important to highlight the positive steps being fought for by individual members on both sides of the aisle,” commented Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance Spokesman Paul D.

The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance made the following statement today in response to the Office of Campaign and Political Finance’s (OCPF) initial draft regulations to codify the union loophole:
“We are pleased to see the union loophole get dramatically smaller. OCPF and MassFiscal came to complete agreement on one issue today: the $15,000 threshold should be eliminated. This will result in more competitive elections and more equality in campaign finance law. It’s refreshing to see years of work on this issue being validated today, but there’s still more work to be done. Even at the $1000 level, OCPF’s regulations still provide an unfair advantage to unions over others and we will continue to work to right that wrong,” stated Paul Diego Craney, spokesperson to Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance.Read more
