Mitchell, Publisher t was a shock to learn on Thursday morning of the sudden passing of former Everett City Clerk Michael Matarazzo. It was only a few weeks ago when we posted the obituary for his son, Michael, who passed away on Easter Sunday. Our hearts go out to Denise and the Matarazzo family, his loving wife and mother to their late son. Mike was a force in the city. As the longtime former city clerk, he served the city with dignity, professionalism and a sense of humor. He would always offer a smile and a great conversation for anyone who knew him. Mike was blessed with so many gifts which he was always willing to share; from his musical talents leading a band in his youth, talents he had passed on to his son; to his passion of sharing his gifts of poetry, music, and writing the history of his beloved city of Everett. Mike was always there Right by you. Member FDIC Member DIF Michael Matarazzo for my father and me when we fi rst began our journey publishing the Everett Advocate over 30 years ago; providing historical content on the city he loved so dearly. Mike could be found on New Year’s Eve at the 8/10 Bar & Grill as the DJ and Master of Ceremonies leading everyone into the New Year. This was what Mike was all about – leading, entertaining, educating, and serving everyone he knew. Our deepest condolences go out to Denise and the Matarazzo family. Everett will never be the same without him. RIP, Mike.

Because of the nature of the charges, the female councillor’s name has not been released. The charges stem from an incident on March 11 when Le allegedly slapped the female councillor on the rear end during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the Schiavo Club. “It is incredibly frustrating and sad that in this day and age women still have to justify how assault is not okay,” said the female councillor. “Touching women inappropriately is not a joke; it is not business as usual and it should not be normalized.” COUNCILLOR | SEE PAGE 9

DiPierro has long made the case that in a city as densely populated as Everett, 30 MPH is just too fast. The change is set to take eff ect on June 1st. DiPierro said “what may R seem like a small diff erence in Anthony DiPierro City Councilor speed, will make a huge diff erence for the safety of our residents.” Throughout the month of May, the City will be working to educate residents about the change and will be issuing daily public service announcements in multiple languages. DiPierro added that the intention of his ordinance is to change the culture of drivers in the community and hopefully make them more cognizant of their surroundings, in turn making neighborhoods safer.

The project was also redesigned to comply with the city’s design regulations.

Based on last year’s figures from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, DeMaria said, a one-bedroom unit would be $755 per month, a two-bedroom unit would be $906 per month and a three-bedroom unit would be $1,046 per month. “Making Everett an affordable place to live for its longstanding residents is of the utmost importance to me,” he said. “The 25 Garvey St. project does an excellent job in addressing the need for affordable housing in the City of Everett.” Impact Development Partners will now seek authorization from the state Department of Housing and Community Development to allow 70 percent of the units to be occupied by current Everett residents. 1911-1919 Revere Beach Pkwy. In other news, M&M Realtors, the applicant for 19111919 Revere Beach Pkwy., reduced the size of the residential project from six stories with 153 units to fi ve stories with 141 units. Although the board was pleased with reduced size, a draft decision with conditions is still needed. Therefore, a vote was not taken and the project will be continued at the June 6 meeting. It is expected that the board will cast its fi nal vote at that time. East of Broadway The current application for East of Broadway was withdrawn without prejudice. The decision, which was made by applicant Wynn Development, was in response to a ruling from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission that stated that an entertainment venue with 1,000 to 3,500 seats was no longer permissible.

This budget responsibly responds to the needs of residents and makes targeted investments to support the Commonwealth’s families. Funded at $49.73 billion, the House’s FY23 budget continues its strong commitment to cities and towns, and it includes significant investments in health care, education, housing and workforce development, among other priorities. Everett will receive $100,000 for substance abuse counselors, $100,000 for a first-time homebuyers program and $100,000 for the construction of a boathouse on the Malden River. “The House budget responds to the economic challenges currently facing Massachusetts residents by balancing a focus on immediate needs such as workforce development, with a focus on long-term investments that are designed to grow our economy in a sustainable way,” said House Speaker Ronald Mariano. “I want to thank Chairman Michlewitz for his indispensable guidance, as well as the Committee on Ways and Means and my colleagues in the House for their tireless hard work.” Mariano and the House Ways and Means Committee introduced their FY23 budget on April 13, following a review of the Governor’s proposal and a series of budget hearings. After three days of debate and over a thousand proposed amendments, the budget passed the House of Representatives 155-0, and it now goes to the Senate for their consideration. “I am thrilled with how we did this year in the budget, both specifically in Everett and across the Commonwealth,” said McGonagle. “In collaboration with the City, we determined three projects we’d like to get funding for in the coming year. Each of these address concerns of different groups that make up our awesome community. As always, I am grateful to Speaker Mariano, Chair Michlewitz and the rest of my colleagues for working together to pass funding for critical issues in Massachusetts. I look forward to continuing to represent Everett and bringing our neighbors the care they deserve.” “This budget builds off the successes of the last few years and prioritizes our residents,” said Representative Aaron Michlewitz (D-Boston), who is Chairperson of the House Committee on Ways and Means. “By reinvesting in the people of the Commonwealth we will continue to assist those recovering from this pandemic while making our economy stronger and more Everett Aluminum 10 Everett Ave., Everett 617-389-3839 Owned & operated by the Conti family since 1958 • 57 Years! family since 1958 • 64 “Same name, phone number & address for over half a century.

Additional investments include funding for programming such as the Elder Mental Health Outreach Teams, the Safe and Successful Youth Initiative Expansion, nine Elder Supportive Housing Sites and the Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone (SHINE) program. The budget fully funds Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children at $343M, as well as Emergency Aid to the Elderly, Disabled and Children at $137M. The House budget reflects the commitment to supporting health and behavioral health needs across the Commonwealth. Investments include: • $10M to expand emergency diversion boarding programs within the Department of Mental Health • $188.6M for the Bureau of Substance Addiction Services • $12.5M for behavioral health supports • $48.3M for early intervention services, with dedicated funding to help its workforce recover from the pandemic The House FY23 budget includes funding for housing and homelessness prevention, investing $150M for the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP), $140M for Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT), $100M for homeless individuals, $92M for housing authority subsidies and $59.4M for HomeBASE The budget funds the Department of Developmental Services at $2.44 billion – aimed to support individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

Page 14 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, MAy 6, 2022 ~ Letter to the Editor ~ Massachusetts Campaign for Single Payer Health Care Kick off for a non-binding ballot initiative will continue throughout May Dear Editor: You may be asked for your signature to help get a question on the November, 2022 Ballot. There needs to be enough signatures for a question to be included on the Ballot. There is urgency to accumulate signatures because only three Ballot questions are allowed. You can make a difference in getting Massachusetts one step closer to a better, less complicated health system. Provide your signature and/or volunteer to help collect signatures. Go to masscare.org/non-binding ballot initiative to help with this Campaign. The Ballot question is proposed by the advocacy organization: Mass-Care: The Massachusetts Campaign for Single Payer Health Care. Mass-Care has identified many Districts across the Commonwealth for this Campaign. Malden’s 33rd Middlesex, represented by Rep. Steven Ultrino and 35th Middlesex, represented by Rep. Paul Donato have been chosen. The Ballot question proposed is as follows: “Shall the Representative from this District be instructed to vote for legislation to create a single payer system of universal health care that provides all Massachusetts residents with comprehensive health care coverage, including the freedom to choose doctors and other health care professionals, facilities and services, and eliminate the role of insurance companies in health care by creating an insurance trust fund that is publicly administered?” Why vote yes? As a nurse in hospital, school and health insurance settings, I have encountered numerous occasions in which inequities exist. These are based on income, race, ethnicity and type of health insurance. While individual caregivers’ address immediate medical needs of each patient, one cannot help but see the cumulative effects of differences in opportunity in the lives of patients. While working for a major health insurer in the area of utilization management and “health care cost containment”, I saw how costly a person’s health insurance can be. Despite efforts to contain costs, increase the percentage of residents covered by insurance, imposing regulatory requirements on hospitals and providers of care, Massachusetts remains one of most expensive places for individuals, families and employers to purchase insurance. The system remains highly fragmented and administratively burdensome. The Ballot question is a non-binding policy question that, if passed does not require the legislators to be Cosponsors. It shows them that there is interest in their District and builds local power to create organizations that demonstrate wide support of this kind of health care. Your participation moves Massachusetts toward a comprehensive, quality, affordable, equitable health care because it is basic to life and human dignity. The name “single payer health care” is a general term that can raise many questions. It covers other names you may have heard. Currently in the Massachusetts Legislative process, is the Bill: House 1267 and Senate 766: An Act to Establish Medicare for All in Massachusetts. Passage of this Bill would result in “health care trust” to form single payer health care. Representative Steven Ultrino and Senator Jason Lewis are Cosponsors of the Act to Establish Medicare for All in Massachusetts. So, as you think about the way you and your loved ones’ health care is delivered and financed today, you may wonder: • Why are my premiums so expensive? • Why do I have to have such a high deductible to afford insurance at all? • Why did my neighbor wait so long to go to the Emergency Room? • Why are there so many hoops to go through to get what I need? • Why can’t I find a psychotherapist for my teenager? • How would a single payer system solve this? • Could a system really be “one and done”? A recent University of Massachusetts poll indicated that 86 percent of respondents were “strongly in favor” or “somewhat in favor” of Medicare for All. Many of these respondents may have been aware of the “2021 Financial Analysis” by UMass Amherst Economics Professor Gerald Friedman. Professor Friedman analyzed the economic effects of An Act Establishing Medicare for All in Massachusetts. Professor Friedman concludes that “the Act would replace the multiplayer system of employer-based insurance, individually acquired insurance and federally sponsored programs (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid) with a single billing pipeline, thereby reducing administrative bloat and monopolistic pricing”. He continues “after expanding coverage to the uninsured, removing barriers to access and correcting for the underpayment of Medicaid services, the Act would save $34 billion in the first year alone.” To read the Executive Summary or Full Report, go to masscare.org/Legislation. Interestingly, the birthplace of Medicare is the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada. To read about the history of Medicare and how it became the national single payer in Canada, read: “They said Medicare for All Wouldn’t Work in Canada, too,” by Luke Savage. There are many other sites explaining the many political, economic and the ingredients of what has become Canada’s current national health system. A single payer system, such as Medicare for All would improve not only patients’ cost, quality of care and access to services. It is also likely to streamline operations for providers (hospitals, outpatient practices). Keverian School to present ‘Seussical, Jr.’ in June Local business community steps up for production GENEROUS DONATION: David LaRovere, Treasurer of Messinger Insurance, recently presented a check to Britt Mitchell, a Drama teacher at the Keverian School. The check will help fund the production of a musical produced by Ms. Mitchell and assisted by Music Director Eric Dauenhauer and Choreographer Hayley Petraitis in directing the Drama Club’s first musical, “Seussical, Jr.” Performances will be held from June 3-4 at 6:30 p.m. at Everett High School and will feature 37 Keverian Drama students in grades 5-8. (Advocate Photo by Christopher Roberson) The complexities of health care in Massachusetts cannot solely be attributed to “sicker patients”. Some private insurance carriers use different survival tactics. An example is that Seniors in the traditional public Medicare plan are being enticed to join private insurance plans. This is called Direct Contracting. Under Direct Contracting, private entities offer Medicare Advantage Plans to seniors. Under this model, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has moved millions of Traditional Medicare beneficiaries into mostly commercial for-profit plans called Direct Contracting Entities, without enrollees’ full understanding or consent. This program is called REACH – Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health. Concern about Direct Contracting Entities is relevant to a Single Payer System, such as Medicare for All because individuals receive fewer services per premium dollar under a private compared to a public insurer. This deceptive practice has, and will continue to occur, creating financial incentives that are not in the best interest of seniors. One seamless single payer system for health care, for your lifespan could be far more efficient and less complicated. Once again, Massachusetts has an opportunity to lead the nation in health care reform. This was accomplished in 2006 with the Affordable Care Act. The move to single payer health care, such as Medicare for All makes a healthier Commonwealth! Please sign the Ballot Initiative! Make it happen with Mass-Care. Sincerely, Dee Campbell-Tompkins, BSN (Nursing), MPH (Public Health)

APPROVE $49.7 BILLION FISCAL 2023 STATE BUDGET (H 4700) House 155-0, approved and sent to the Senate a $49.7 billion fi scal 2023 state budget after adding nearly $130 million in spending during three days of debate. The House version now goes to the Senate which will approve a diff erent version. A House-Senate conference committee will eventually craft a plan that will be presented to the House and Senate for consideration and sent to the governor. Provisions include $18.4 billion to fully fund MassHealth caseloads; $70 million in rate increases for subsidized child care providers; $3 million for early childhood mental health grants; $110 million for a year-long extension of universal school meals; $243 million for charter school aid; $60 million for adult education to support English Language Learners and adults working towards their GED; $15 million to support teachers of color, including $7.5 million for Tomorrow’s Teachers program to provide scholarships to people committed to teaching in public schools and $7.5 million for loan repayment for teachers of color; $188.6 million for the Bureau of Substance Addiction Service; and $653 million for the University of Massachusetts system. Another provision would require the Department of Correction (DOC), sheriff s and the Department of Youth Services (DYS) to provide phone calls free of charge to persons receiving and initiating phone calls and other services such as video or electronic communications, who are currently paying $14.4 million per year to communicate. The package also would outlaw child marriage of children under the age of 18 and empower minors currently in marriages to seek divorce or annulment on their own. “The House budget responds to the economic challenges currently facing Massachusetts residents by balancing a focus on immediate needs such as workforce development, with a focus on long-term investments that are designed to grow our economy in a sustainable way,” said House Speaker Ron Mariano (D-Quincy). (A Yes” vote is for the budget.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes PRESCRIPTION REBATE FOR SENIORS OVER 67 (H 4700) House 28-127, rejected an amendment making seniors, aged 67 or older, who are at or below 300 percent of the federal poverty guidelines, eligible for a prescription drug rebate on their total out-of-pocket expenses of up to $2,500 for the 12 months from July 1, 2022 until June 30, 2023. Amendment supporters said this rebate will help low-income seniors on fi xed incomes. They noted some of these seniors currently have to choose between paying for prescription drugs, food and heating costs. Amendment opponents said ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ CITY OF EVERETT there are several bills being worked on that would help seniors pay for their prescription drugs. They said this proposal should be fi led as a separate bill in order to hold public hearings on the measure. Reps. Nick Boldyga (R-Southwick), sponsor of the amendment and Tom Stanley (D-Waltham), the main opponent of the amendment did not respond to repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. (A “Yes” vote is for the up to $2,500 rebate. A “No” vote is against it). Rep. Joseph McGonagle No FARM FUEL TAX REBATE (H 4700) House 29-127, rejected an amendment that would provide a tax rebate to farmers for the cost of fuel taxes paid for the operation of farm equipment from July 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022. Amendment supporters said the rebate will help hardworking farmers during this diffi cult economic time. They noted it will also help combat food shortages. Amendment opponents said this rebate is a new idea and should be fi led as a separate bill in order to hold public hearings on the measure. Reps. Nick Boldyga (R-Southwick), the sponsor of the amendment and Mark Cusack (D-Braintree), the main opponent of the amendment, did not respond to repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. “Farmers, like everyone in this ‘Bidenfl ation’ economy, are struggling to survive, and with the state’s historic surplus revenue bonanza (aka, over-taxation), the state can certainly aff ord to lighten some of their burden easily,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “Every small savings for producers will reduce the infl ated endcost for beleaguered consumers.” (A “Yes” vote is for the rebate. A “No” vote is against it). Rep. Joseph McGonagle No REDUCE ESTATE/DEATH TAX (H 4700) House 30-126, rejected an amendment that would exempt the fi rst $2 million of the value of a person’s estate from the state’s estate/death tax that a person is required to pay following their death before distribution to any benefi ciary. Under current law, only the first $1 million is exempt. Under the current $1 million threshold and under the proposed $2 million threshold, the tax on anything over the threshold is a graduated one that ranges from 0.8 percent to 16 percent. This tax applies to the entire estate value, not just the portion above the threshold. Most Republicans are against any such tax and coined the name “death tax” to imply that the government taxes you even after you die. Most Democrats support the tax and call it an “estate tax” to imply that this tax is only paid by the wealthy. Amendment supporters said that in light of the rising value of houses, with the average home price more than $500,000, the $1 million threshold of this unfair regressive tax is too low and noted the federal tax exempts the fi rst $12 million. They noted that Massachusetts is losing many residents, who move to Florida and other states where this tax does not even exist. “Massachusetts has the most EVERETT CITY COUNCIL PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE FY2023 PROPOSED BUDGET APPROPRIATIONS To all interested parties, The Everett City Council, in accordance with Section 6-4 of the City Charter, shall conduct a public hearing at a special meeting of the council on Monday, May 23, 2022 at 6:00 PM in the City Council Chambers at Everett City Hall, Third Floor, 484 Broadway, Everett, MA 02149.

The estate tax drives people out of the state and even President Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware recently repealed it completely. Only the Massachusetts Legislature would be willing to keep the country’s most aggressive estate tax, which hurts our elderly population the most.” Amendment opponents said that this proposed tax reduction is one of many that are included in a separate stand-alone piece of legislation fi led by Gov. Charlie Baker. They argued the amendment is premature and that the House should not act on this or any other tax reduction piecemeal here in the state budget but rather should wait until the Revenue Committee holds a public hearing on the governor’s package as a whole.

Tahiliani said the results of 860 surveys showed that students and families want additional bilingual library materials, ways to teach students how to access those materials and to foster a “culture of literacy.” Tahiliani said in one survey response, a parent wrote: “My child misses the library.” “We were aware of the strong desire for school libraries when we started this process, but our surveys and focus groups certainly reaffirmed that sentiment,” said Tahiliani. The next step will be to draft a formal Strategic Plan which will be presented to the community. EHS senior receives national computing award Tahiliani called attention to Everett High School senior Betania Zelalem, who received the National Center for Women & Information Technology’s Award for Aspirations in Computing. She said Zelalem was one of 400 students across the country to receive this distinction. In addition to speaking three languages, Zelalem is president of the Computer Science Honor Society, a student ambassador and a member of the National Honor Society. Looking ahead, Zelalem plans to study artificial intelligence, computer science and linguistics in college. 21ST ANNUAL | FROM PAGE 10 “We are excited to celebrate in-person and virtually with all the runners and walkers who continue to support The Angel Fund through the Harpoon 5-Miler,” Rich Kennedy, president of The Angel Fund said. “The Angel Fund is grateful to Harpoon Brewery for its support these past 21 year as we continue our fight to find a cure for ALS.” In addition to the Harpoon 5-Miler, donations to the Angel Fund for ALS Research can also be made online at www.theangelfund. org or can be sent to The Angel Fund, 649 Main Street, Wakefield, MA 01880.

Joseph McGonagle No REDUCE CAPITAL GAINS TAX FROM 12 PERCENT TO 5 PERCENT (H 4700) House 29-127,rejected an amendment that would reduce the short-term capital gains tax from 12 percent to five percent. Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation said that anything that can help the investors in Massachusetts keep up with mounting inflation is a positive step for the commonwealth’s economy, “Why should the capital gains or any tax imposed be charged at a higher rate than earned income, especially considering the multi-billions in historic revenue surpluses?” asked Ford. “The Massachusetts Legislature Height: Four (4) stories, not to exceed sixty (60) feet maximum.

It’s clear the Legislature wants to bring us back to Taxachusetts.” Amendment opponents again said that this amendment is premature and urged the House not to act on tax reductions one at a time but instead to wait and consider Gov. Baker’s comprehensive tax reduction package which might be voted on in a few weeks. Reps. Nick Boldyga (R-Southwick), the sponsor of the amendment and Rep. Mark Cusack (D-Braintree), the main opponent of the amendment, did not respond to repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. (A “Yes” vote is for reducing capital gains tax from 12 percent to 5 percent. A “No” vote is against the reduction). Rep. Joseph McGonagle No INCREASE TAX BREAK FOR SENIORS (H 4700) House 31-125, rejected an amendment that would increase by $1,005 (from $750 to $1,755) the maximum tax credit which seniors over 65 who qualify, can receive under the Senior Circuit Breaker Tax Credit Law. The law applies to seniors with homes valued at less than $884,000 and who earn $62,000 or less for a single individual who is not the head of a household; $78,000 for a head of household; and $93,000 for married couples filing a joint return.

If you are a renter, 25 percent of your annual Massachusetts rent must exceed 10 percent of your total Massachusetts income for the tax year. Amendment supporters said this will help seniors on fixed incomes who are having a difficult time as inflation and the cost of food and gas soar. Amendment opponents again said that this amendment is premature and urged the House not to act on tax reductions one at a time but instead to wait and consider Gov. Baker’s comprehensive tax reduction package which might be voted on in a few weeks. (A “Yes” vote is for the increased tax credit of $1,005. A “No” vote is against it). Rep. Joseph McGonagle No 4700) GAS TAX SUSPENSION (H House 32-124, rejected an amendment that would have suspended the state’s 24-centsper-gallon gas tax for 60 days. The measure also requires the state to use money from its General Fund to cover transportation costs, normally funded by the gas tax, such as road and bridge maintenance, during the twomonth holiday. “The gasoline tax relief would help individuals with the rising costs of transportation, groceries, goods and services,” said sponsor Rep. Paul Frost (R-Auburn). “Democrats and Republicans came together in Connecticut to temporarily eliminate their state gasoline tax and there is no reason we can’t provide that immediate relief for the residents and businesses here in Massachusetts.” Rep. William Straus (D-Mattapoisett) said the tax is currently paid by distributors, not directly by consumers at the pump. He noted that the amendment does not assure that the tax cut will be passed along to consumers. “If Rep. Straus is claiming the savings won’t be passed down to the consumer than that can be addressed through the attorney general or Rep. Straus could’ve offered a further amendment to address the issue when it was on the floor instead of making it an excuse not to vote for it,” responded Frost. “Rep. Straus wasn’t interested in making it work for Massachusetts residents or businesses but rather chose to grandstand against much needed tax and cost relief.” (A “Yes” vote is for the suspension of the gas tax. A “No” vote is against the suspension). Rep. Joseph McGonagle No REDUCE GAMING TAX (S 2844) Senate 4-35 rejected an amendment that would reduce from 20 percent to 10 percent the gaming excise tax for in-person betting and from 35 percent to 12.5 percent the tax for mobile bets and daily fantasy sports. “This amendment creates a much more practical accounting for taxes that reflects the market realities that are present in the sports wagering industry across the nation,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). “If you want to have a successful sports wagering business in the commonwealth then the tax rates in the bill have to be more realistic and practical.” Senate Ways and Means chair Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport) urged senators to defeat the amendment. “One of the missions of this particular bill was to provide the best benefit for the commonwealth’s citizens and taxpayers, not the best benefit for the online gaming operators that want to work here.” (A Yes” vote is for the reduction. A “No” vote is against it). Sen. Sal DiDomenico No PROHIBIT CREDIT CARD USE FOR SPORTS BETTING (S 2844) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment to a section of the sports betting bill that prohibits a credit card from being used to place bets. The amendment clarifies that any use of credit, whether the credit card itself or some other third-party, is prohibited. Amendment supporters said that without the amendment, a consumer could link a credit card to an online payment system, such as PayPal, or use a credit card to purchase sports betting gift cards at retailers like 711, Walmart and various gas stations. “Prohibiting credit card use, particularly for those with a gambling addiction, will prevent consumers from going into insurmountable debt,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford). “If the commonwealth is going to allow this form of gambling, then we have a responsibility to protect the public by ensuring all forms of credit are not allowed. We cannot leave significant consumer protections in the hands of a profit-driven industry, and this amendment ensures there are no credit loopholes for third-party payment methods like gift cards or online payment systems.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible latenight sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session..

Eff ective September 3, 2019, MassHealth no longer uses the IRS Table S interest rates (found in Book Aleph) along with interest rates published by the IRS pursuant to Internal Revenue Code Section 7520 when calculating the value of a life estate and remainder interest in real estate. MassHealth is now using the Social Security Operations Manual (POMS) SI 01140.120 Life Estate and Remainder Interest Table. The result of this is that the value of a life estate interest as calculated by MassHealth is much higher than it otherwise would be under the old valuation method. Therefore, if a parent had deeded his or her home to the children many years ago with a reserved life estate and now wishes to sell the home, the amount of the net sales proceeds that will belong to the parent is a lot higher than it other~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Middlesex Probate and Family Court 10-U Commerce Way Woburn, MA 01801 (781) 865-4000 Docket No. MI22P2151EA Estate of: Bruce A.

UNSUPERVISED ADMINISTRATION UNDER THE MASSACHUSETTS UNIFORM PROBATE CODE (MUPC) A Personal Representative appointed under the MUPC in an unsupervised administration is not required to file an inventory or annual accounts with the Court. Persons interested in the estate are entitled to notice regarding the administration directly from the Personal Representative and may petition the Court in any matter relating to the estate, including the distribution of assets and expenses of administration. WITNESS, Hon. Maureen H. Monks, First Justice of this Court. Date: April 25, 2022 TARA E. DeCRISTOFARO REGISTER OF PROBATE May 6, 2022 wise would be. Once the home is sold and the parent is now credited with the portion attributed to the life estate interest, those monies will then be considered countable assets when applying for MassHealth. If the parent immediately transfers those monies to his or her children, a new fi ve year look back period would commence as of the date of the transfer. As a result, much more money is at stake if the parent were to go into a nursing home prior to the expiration of that fi ve-year period. If the real estate is a vacation home, if MassHealth utilizes the new tables for valuing the life estate in the vacation home, the parent may very well be over the asset limit due to the higher valuation. Using the old IRS Table S along with the Internal Revenue Code Section 7520 interest rates would result in much less exposure as far as countable assets are concerned. One option would be to rent out the vacation home at a profit and take the position that the vacation home is necessary for self-support. In this case, the vacation home would not be considered a countable asset. The net income from the vacation home would have to be paid to the nursing home as part of the patient pay amount, but MassHealth would pay the bulk of the monthly nursing home cost if the application is otherwise approved. If the real estate in question is your principal residence and it is sold, under the MassHealth new calculation methodology, more of the gain will be allocated to the life tenant resulting in less or no capital gains tax due to the $250,000 capital gains tax exclusion (if single) or $500,000 (if married). If the children do not live in the home, they would not be able to take advantage of the capital gains tax exclusion. In that situation, having less of the sales proceeds attributed to the remaindermen (i.e. children) would end up saving them in taxes. The irrevocable trusts off ers the best approach to protecting assets and assuring favorable tax results now that court cases have been decided against MassHealth in support of the use of these trusts as an estate planning/Medicaid planning strategy.
