2011-2012 Legislative Session Overview

As of the February 4 deadline for filing and co-sponsoring bills for the 2011-12 legislative session, I have filed 18 bills and co-sponsored 137 more.  

My focus in this session will be on promoting economic recovery, controlling health care costs, reforming the public employee pension system, and helping Watertown and Cambridge maintain essential services. At the same time, for the long-term wellbeing of the Commonwealth, we must keep our commitment to the environment, to social justice, and to caring for the most vulnerable among us.
