The Massachusetts Health Care Trust will be resubmitted on December 4, 2002. Activists will be in the State House gathering signatures of legislative cosponsors on:
Tuesday, December 3rd – 10am to 4pm – call the office at 800-383-1973 if you would like to join us. We will meet at the 4th Floor cafeteria
Wednesday, December 4th – 9am to 1pm in Room 222 at the State House. Join us if you can.
Senator Steve Tolman (D-Brighton) and Representative Frank Hynes (D-Marshfield) are the new lead sponsors for the bill. Both legislators agree that the best strategy is to file the bill only in the Senate, this makes it easier to move. Frank Hynes will be listed as the lead House sponsor and will sign right under Steve Tolman. Representatives can sign onto a Senate bill, I am assured that Reps are used to doing this.
CALL YOUR STATE SENATOR AND STATE REPRESENTATIVE AND TELL THEM THAT YOU EXPECT THEM TO SIGN ON AS A COSPONSOR.
