The House 131-24, overrode Gov. Healey’s veto of $250,000 (reducing funding from $4,250,000 to $4,000,000) in funding for the Parent-Child Plus Program.
According to its website, “The goals of this intensive, evidence-based home visiting model are to promote school readiness and academic success by strengthening parent-child verbal interaction and reading and play activities in the home.”
“I am reducing this item to the amount projected to be necessary,” said Healey in her veto message. “The adjusted funding level proposed here is consistent with the fiscal year 2023 General Appropriations Act and sustains significant expansion to this line-item in recent fiscal years.”
(A “Yes” vote is for the $250,000. A “No” vote is against it.)
