Boston- Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) who co-sponsored S.2136 establishing the retail task force released, the following statement today regarding the release of the Senate Retail Task Force Report:
“Retailers in Massachusetts are fighting for their survival against serious threats, and the task force has done a good job of listening to their concerns and highlighting them in this report.
The employers in this sector bring benefits to our state and our communities that we cannot afford to lose. Given that reality and the compelling information documented in this report, we need to collectively find the will and the means to take action to support them.
We must not ignore the situation and the issues presented to us by the members of the task force in such a comprehensive way.”
