麻州眾議會議長發表聲明反對刪預算

A Statement from House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo


“While recent reports require that we continue to watch revenue numbers closely, I believe it is premature to make mid-year budget cuts, particularly given that we are only approximately 0.2 percent below benchmarks. The House is proud of its tradition of fiscal prudence and we remain confident that our work to trim the FY17 budget following passage of both the House and Senate budgets reflects a responsible and economically sound response.

It seems that the Administration is seeking to achieve policy objectives that have previously been rejected by the Legislature through its unilateral use of 9C cuts. Recent revenue numbers indicate a need to be vigilant; they do not however necessitate cuts at this time.”
