HOUSE/SENATE OVERRIDE GOV VETO $3.1 MILLION FOR PUBLIC SAFETY

By Bob Katzen

The House 149-1, Senate 32-4, overrode Gov. Baker’s $1.2 million veto reduction (from $282.6 million to 281.4 million) in funding for the Massachusetts State Police to mostly fund additional state police patrols at various locations across the state.

Override supporters said these funds are needed in various

cities and towns across the state to help protect public safety.

In his veto message, the governor said that he is striking language which earmarks funding for programs not recommended.

(A “Yes” vote is for spending the $1.2 million A “Nay” vote is against spending it).

Rep. Christine Barber Yes

Rep. Mike Connolly Yes

Rep. Denise Provost Yes

Sen. Patricia Jehlen Yes
