$774,000 FOR HOUSING SERVICES (H 4040)

By William Tauro

The House 129-26, Senate 38-0, overrode Gov. Healey’s veto of $774,000 (reducing funding from $10,474,000 million to $9,700,000 million) for housing services and counseling to find and maintain housing for many people who face significant barriers to sustaining housing payments. The money would be distributed via grants to regional housing consumer education centers operated by the regional nonprofit housing authorities.

“I am reducing this item to the amount projected to be necessary,” said Healey in her veto message.

(A “Yes” vote is for the $774,000. A “No” vote is against it.)

Rep. Christine Barber Yes Rep. Mike Connolly Yes Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Erika Uyterhoeven Yes Sen. Patricia Jehlen Yes
