Two weeks ago the New England Archivists sent out a letter of appeal to
help save funding to the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) and the
Massachusetts Center for the Book.


VICTORY!  Funding was restored after State House lawmakers overrode Gov.
Charlie Baker’s 55% budget cut. Thank your legislators
<http://bit.ly/2aH1gXK>! Read more about the restored budget on the Boston
Globe

NEA President, Jennifer Gunter King received a thank you email from MA
State Senator, Stan Rosenberg:



Jennifer

Thanks for your email regarding Governor Baker’s FY17 vetoes to the
Legislature’s budget. Earlier this month, the Legislature passed a balanced
budget reflecting its priorities including investments in education, the
arts, and assisting those who are in need of a helping hand. I am pleased
to inform you that over the last two weeks, the Legislature was successful
in restoring funding for many of these important programs. Included in
these overrides was the restored funding for the Mass Cultural Council
(MCC), a program I have passionately supported for many years. We also
restored funding for our libraries and important literacy programs such as
the Center for the Book. The Legislature was also successful in restoring
funding for programs supported in line-item 4512-0200 which provides
important addiction treatment services. As the Commonwealth continues to
endure an opioid addiction epidemic, it is important that we remain
committed to supporting these critical services. We were also successful in
restoring language that requires health insurance companies to cover
treatment for chronic Lyme disease, ensuring those suffering from this
debilitating disease can receive the treatment they need to live normal
lives.

The Legislature continued its commitment to helping those in need with
restored funding to several programs assisting those that are homeless or
in danger of becoming homeless. Included in overrides was line-item
7003-0102 funding Emergency Assistance Family Shelters, and line-item
7004-3036 which funds programs for assistance to homeless Individuals.
Finally, the Legislature restored language for Municipal Retiree Health
Insurance Premium Freeze to protect retirees from increases in insurance
costs. Since all overrides must originate in the House, several important
issues were never debated in the Senate. For a complete list of budget
overrides please visit our website
<https://malegislature.gov/Bills/189/House/H4450/History>.

Thanks again for taking the time to weigh in on this issue. I appreciate
hearing from constituents on matter of importance to them. Please do not
hesitate to contact my office, should you have any additional questions,
comments, or concerns. For more information on issues affecting our
district and the Commonwealth as a whole, please visit my website at:
