The House 130-24, overrode Gov. Healey’s veto of $880,000 (reducing funding from $2,280,000 to $1,400,000) in funding for the Massachusetts Service Alliance.

According to its website, the Massachusetts Service Alliance is a “private, nonprofit … organization, established in 1991, that expands volunteerism and service in Massachusetts. It provides funding, training and support to individuals and organizations, enabling them to tackle pressing issues, strengthen communities, and make our commonwealth a better place to live.”

“I am vetoing this item because it is not consistent with my House [budget] … recommendation,” said Healey in her veto message. “This is a passthrough and will not impact core Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development programming.”

(A “Yes” vote is for the $880,000 million. A “No” vote is against it.)

Rep. Christine Barber Yes Rep. Mike Connolly Yes Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Erika Uyterhoeven Yes
