Governor’s proposal well-suited to fixing what ails the T
Boston, MA: The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance, a nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to promoting fiscal responsibility and transparency in state government, today expressed its support for Governor Baker’s MBTA reform proposals in written testimony to the state legislature’s Joint Committee on Transportation.
“After a brutal winter of delays and cancellations, it’s abundantly clear to all that major reforms are needed at the MBTA,” said Paul Craney, executive director of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “The governor’s proposals to put the organization in the hands of a control board, empower management, and increase flexibility by suspending the Pacheco Law are significant, and deserve the legislature’s support.
