麻州眾議會議長發聲明

Statement from Robert A. DeLeo
“It makes little sense for the Governor to file this legislation now when the there are several similar bills already in committee. Each year our hope is to hold a sales tax holiday to give our hardworking citizens and local businesses a boost, which is why the House votes consistently in favor of the sales tax holiday whenever revenues allow. 
This year, the Commonwealth experienced unpredicted revenue shortfalls and accordingly, the Legislature had to make significant budget cuts to programs and services. In doing so, however, we protected and prioritized the most critical services and programs. We also maintained our support for local cities and towns. These choices ultimately benefit local businesses, all of which require a strong local economy and infrastructure to thrive in the long-term. 
In addition, we will continue to work with local retailers to support federal action on creating a level playing field for internet and brick-and-mortar businesses alike. ”
