Funding Our Roads and Bridges

Today the Massachusetts State Senate is expected to hold a full formal session where a debate on Chapter 90 road and bridge funding is set to commence.  The bill, filed by Governor Baker, will provide $200,000,000 in funding for our cities and towns to make improvements on our roadways.

With the unprecedented snowfall totals of this past winter, many roads in particular are in desperate need of repair.  Previously, the House of Representatives unanimously passed the bill to be engrossed by a vote of 155-0 on Wednesday, March 25th.  To watch today’s session live that is scheduled for 2:00pm, please click here.   Posted below is the actual text of the bill.
