The House 157-1, approved a $10.5 million consolidated amendment that funds Public Safety and Judiciary.
“The budget is a testament to our unwavering dedication towards criminal justice reform, reducing recidivism, providing access to justice and essential services for inmates, as well as improving police and fire departments in municipalities, and supporting directed patrols by the State Police,” said Rep. Carlos Gonzalez (D-Springfield), chair of the Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security.
Rep. Russell Holmes (D-Boston) did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on why he was the only representative who voted against the amendment.
(A “Yes” vote is for the consolidated amendment.)
