Senate Votes to Send $200 Million to Cities and Towns for Road Repairs

Today, I was happy to vote to support releasing $200 million dollars in so-called “Chapter 90” funding for local road and bridge repairs, continuing the legislature’s strong commitment to supporting cities and towns.

The legislation authorizes $200 million for infrastructure improvements in municipalities across the Commonwealth and follows a longstanding formula which factors in a community’s population, miles of road, and employment rates. Municipalities in the district I represent will receive more than $6 million for this construction season.
