THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021 Page 3 City Council questions need for new high school By Christopher Roberson T he City Council recently voted to postpone the request from the School Committee to accept the Statement of Interest (SOI) to construct a new high school. Mayor Carlo DeMaria has recommended using the land formerly owned by General Electric as the site for a new school. In addition, Superintendent of Schools Priya Tahiliani said the building that currently houses Everett High School was designed to accommodate 1,800 students. However, enrollment has now swelled to 2,057 students. Therefore, she said, there have been discussions about repurposing the high school for students in grades 7-9. The other schools would then be for students in grades K-6. However, during the council’s May 24 meeting, Councillor-at-Large Michael Marchese said he could not justify building a new school. He said the former Everett High School building on Broadway could be an option as well as the building that formerly housed Pope John XXIII High School. “We got the real estate deal of a lifetime and got that school for $10 million,” Marchese said of the Pope John building, adding that it would take at least five years to construct a new high school. “I’m sure that place could be updated and could accommodate everything that we need. It’s on public transportation, there’s adequate parking – that’s what you’re looking for, not something that’s hidden down the other end of the city.” Ward 1 Councillor Fred Capone said overcrowding in the schools has been a longstanding problem. He also Winners recognized for food assistance effort agreed with Marchese about considering the former Everett High School building and Pope John as potential sites for a new school. However, DeMaria’s Chief of Staff, Erin Deveney, said the City of Everett purchased the Pope John building with the intention of converting it into an affordable senior housing complex. “There’s some work that would have to be undone to consider that location,” she said. Yet, Marchese continued to focus on the Pope John building. “Not that I want to deny people affordable housing, but right now the need seems to be accommodating the children,” he said. Chief Financial Officer Eric Demas said the former Everett High School building was considered for an elementary school a few years ago.

Everett Aluminum M assDevelopment has issued a $9.1 million tax-exempt bond on behalf of St. Therese LLC, an affiliate of The Neighborhood Developers, Inc. (TND), which is using bond proceeds to buy, clear and prepare a site located at the intersection of Broadway and Gledhill Avenue in Everett on which it will build a 33-unit affordable rental housing facility for seniors. Located at the site of the former St. Therese Parish, the proposed facility, which is also named St. Therese, will include 30 one-bedroom units and three two-bedroom units; 19 units will be rented to households earning no more than 60 percent of the area median income, and 14 units will be rented to households earning no more than 30 percent of the area median income. St. Therese Parish closed its doors in 2004 and the property was cleared in late 2020. Boston Private Bank purchased the bond. “Preserving and expanding affordable housing in Massachusetts is one of the Baker-Polito Administration’s top economic priorities,” said Housing and Economic Development Secretary Michael Kennealy, who serves as chair of MassDevelopment’s Board of Directors. “For our aging population in particular, access to stable housing is essential to ensuring residents’ health and well-being. We are pleased to see MassDevelopment’s tax-exempt financing, coupled with Department of Housing and Community Development tax credits and subsidy funds, bring St. Therese over the finish line.” “At a time when the need for new housing production is critical, MassDevelopment is proud to help The Neighborhood Developers build 33 new affordable homes for seniors in Everett,” said MassDevelopment President/CEO Daniel Rivera. “St. Therese will be a welcome addition to Greater Boston’s housing stock by offering an affordable, safe, and vibrant community for many seniors to call home.” St. Therese will include a community room, fitness room, common laundry, central air-conditioning and 58 surface parking spaces.

Night Shyamalan as “The Next Spielberg” on their cover, director John Krasinski (best known for playing the ever-smug Jim on “The Office”) earned similarly bold pronouncements with his second directorial effort, “A Quiet Place,” in 2018. That horror-thriller was certainly one in the Spielbergian tradition: a slick creature feature with an unabashedly sentimental (and surprisingly effective) family story at its center. It also featured a genuinely novel concept: a world overrun by monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing, forcing those still living to remain quiet for the majority of the film, lest they become lunch next. That gimmick made for an enthralling theatrical experience, forcing the audiences to wait in silent terror alongside the characters. Therefore, few movies seem more appropriate to lead this crucial Memorial Day Weekend charge at the theaters than “A Quiet Place Part II,” an early summer blockbuster that delivers plenty of killer suspense sequences and heartfelt character beats on par with the first film, even if it ultimately feels like more of the same. Those who have missed going to the movies this past year should find this a fitting return, as Krasinski clearly designed his sequel to be seen on the big screen: Every ominous creak and flitter in the sound design, every creature darting just out of frame in the background – it all lands with maximum impact in a theater. “Part II” opens with a flashback Support our advertisers and local businesses! that gives audiences a glimpse of life moments before the alien invasion. Most importantly, however, it’s a showcase of what makes Krasinski such a promising director. As Lee (Krasinski), his wife Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and hearing-impaired daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds, who steals the whole show here) watches his son, Marcus (Noah Jupe) during his Little League game, cinematographer Polly Morgan frames this mundane weekend afternoon with palpable menace. These images of pure Americana – barbecues, baseball, nuclear families – are undermined by eerie silences and the uncomfortable open spaces Morgan leaves in every frame. An over-the-shoulder shot of a kid at home plate leaves the wide-open sky in the foreground, suggesting an incoming alien invasion that the audience knows could be coming at any instant. When chaos does indeed erupt, the camera remains on the actors’ faces, letting the monsters scutter in and out of focus. It’s an ingenious technique that prioritizes the human drama while also elevating the horror of the alien threat. The rest of the film takes place immediately after the events of the first “Quiet Place,” following the central family as they leave the now-destroyed farm they called their home and venture out into the world seeking a new one. Story-wise, there really isn’t anything here one couldn’t find in, say, your average episode of “The Walking Dead.” Post-apocalyptic tropes abound here, and yet “Part II” does just enough to rise above its more generic genre contemporaries. First and foremost is positioning Millicent Simmonds’ character Regan as the real lead, subverting expectations with the introduction of a grizzled survivor, played by Cillian Murphy, named Emmett. Here, Regan emerges as the determined leader of the pair, her steely resolve making up for Emmett’s frightened skepticism. In the end, “A Quiet Place Part II” doesn’t necessarily tell you anything that the first one didn’t three years ago. Family is still a source of courage in the most dire of situations, and watching this follow-up is simply watching these characters learn that lesson once again. Nonetheless, “Part II” would stand out as a worthwhile trip to the theater in any summer movie season. In 2021, of course, that’s now twice as true.

Mayor addresses concerns over housing, transportation By Christopher Roberson M ayor Carlo DeMaria recently spoke about the ongoing push from his administration to bolster public transportation and to alleviate the city’s housing shortage. “We have a lot of overcrowding in our community; a lot of people tend to want to live in Everett,” he said during the Ward 2 Community Meeting on May 26. In addition, he said the cost of renting continues to be extremely high. “Rents are exorbitant,” said DeMaria, adding that the cost of renting a room now ranges between $1,000 and $1,200. However, DeMaria assured residents, particularly senior citizens, that additional housing is in the pipeline with developments planned for the Broadway properties formerly occupied by St. Therese Parish and Pope John XXIII High School. He also said another 500 units of housing are planned for the Boston Street property formerly occupied by Wood Waste of Boston. Resident Colleen Garrity asked DeMaria why he is in favor of housing without parking. In response, he said that although many residents use public transportation, there are still “too many cars” in the city. “We need to change the thinking,” said DeMaria, adding that in the coming months landlords will not rent an apartment to anyone who has a car. Transportation Planner Jay Monty said all affordable housing units must have one parking space. He also said that podium parking has become increasingly popular. However, Monty said there is still much to be done before Everett can achieve its zero parking objective. “We have to get to a place where we have the amenities,” he said. “We’re working in that direction.” Resident Patrick Dailey asked if redistricting would be a possible solution to the schools being overcrowded, adding that the Pope John building can accommodate 1,150 students and could be used as a middle school.

We are proud Macedo named to SNHU Dean’s List M ANCHESTER, N.H. – Ninette Macedo of Everett was named to the Dean’s List at Southern New Hampshire University for the spring 2021 semester. Full-time students who have earned a grade point average of at least 3.50 are named to the Dean’s List. COUNCIL | FROM PAGE 3 ever, those plans did not move forward. “That was determined to be too costly,” he said. Demas also reminded the council that the SOI is just the first step in the process of building a new school. “This gets Everett in the queue,” he said, adding that the City of Everett has until June 25 to submit the SOI to the Massachusetts School Building Authority. The council will revisit the matter during its next meeting on June 7. to support the St. Therese development which will create new, affordable homes for seniors with support services to help them thrive in Everett.” “The addition of the St. Therese project will bring much needed affordable housing opportunities to Everett,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “Altogether, this project will provide 77 senior citizen affordable units with a local preference of up to 70 percent for Everett residents. The affordability of these units will range from 30 percent Area Median Income to 60 percent Area Median Income. This would translate to a typical one-bedroom having a monthly rent as low as $1,296 with some rents as low as $0 depending on tenant income. In addition to the 77 rental units, the project will also construct six new three-bedroom townhouse condominiums, which will be for sale below market rates, marketed for firsttime homeowners with a shared income from $85,000 to $154,000 a year. I look forward to being able to welcome residents to their new homes upon completion.” TND is a nonprofit community development corporation headquartered in Chelsea. The organization’s mission is to create strong neighborhoods that enable community members to secure a stable home, achieve economic mobility and determine their own future. TND owns 488 affordable housing units in Chelsea and Revere. “In 2020, COVID-19 painfully highlighted the connection between health and housing; at St. Therese people will have access to healthy, affordable housing and convenient medical services and wellness programs at the same time,” said TND Executive Director Rafael Mares. “The PACE model to be offered at St. Therese will provide seniors the support and resources to safely continue living in the communities they are rooted in.” MassDevelopment has previously provided funding for other TND projects, including a $6.8 million tax-exempt bond in January 2018 to build and equip a 34-unit affordable rental housing facility in Chelsea; a $5.8 million tax-exempt bond in February 2016 to preserve, renovate and build 52 affordable housing units in Chelsea and Revere; and more than $2 million in grants from the Brownfields Redevelopment Fund between 2008 and 2014 for site assessment and remediation for the Box District homes, which are transit-oriented housing developments in Chelsea. MassDevelopment, the state’s finance and development agency, works with businesses, nonprofits, banks and communities to stimulate economic growth across the Commonwealth. During FY2020, MassDevelopment financed or managed 341 projects generating investment of more than $2.69 billion in the Massachusetts economy. These projects are estimated to create or support 10,871 jobs and build or preserve 1,787 housing units.

Visit us at www.bobkatzenshow.com THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’ and senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of May 17-21. $400 MILLION FOR NEW SOLDIERS’ HOME IN HOLYOKE (H 3770) House 160-0, Senate 400, approved and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker a bill authorizing $400 million to fund the construction of a new Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke. The push to construct the new home follows the deaths of 77 veteran residents last year as a result of a COVID-19 outbreak at the current facility. A House-Senate conference committee hammered out this compromise version after the House and Senate approved different versions of the measure. The bill also provides $200 million to increase geographic equity and accessibility of long-term care services for Bay State veterans with a focus on areas that are not primarily served by the soldiers’ homes in Chelsea or Holyoke. The Baker administration and House and Senate leaders have urged speedy passage of the proposal in order to meet deadlines to apply for as much as $260 million in funding from the federal government, which would leave state taxpayers with a $140 million bill. “Rebuilding the soldiers’ home in Holyoke and increasing access to services for our veterans is necessary and long overdue, especially after tragically losing many residents of the soldiers’ home to a COVID-19 outbreak last year,” said Sen. Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) who served as the lead Senate negotiator of the conference committee. “This funding will ensure that the commonwealth’s veterans are met with the services that they deserve and that address their unique and changing needs.” “Our veterans throughout the commonwealth deserve the very best in care and treatment as they age,” said Sen. Paul Feeney (D-Foxborough), another member of the conference committee. The bill that we enacted today will ensure that their needs are met for generations to come in a safe, comfortable and welcoming soldiers’ home. Additionally, it is critical that this vital taxpayer-funded facility be built efficiently by a local, well-trained, safe and diverse workforce that provides a career pipeline for skilled craftspeople in Western Massachusetts. The bipartisan and collaborative bond authorization bill we sent to the governor is reflective of our values and consistent with our focus on providing equitable and topnotch care to every veteran in the commonwealth.” “As the senator for the city of Holyoke and the Soldiers’ Home, I know what this new home means to so many in our community,” said Sen. John Velis (D-Westfield), Senate chair of the Committee on Veterans and Federal Affairs. “This has truly been a long and emotional process that started well before this legislation was first filed. From the very start, families and veterans gave me a very clear message: ‘Get this done.’ We could not let them down and I am proud to say that we have not let them down … The funding authorized in this bill will ensure that the future residents of the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home and veterans across our commonwealth receive the care with honor and dignity that they have earned in service to our nation.

Sal DiDomenico Yes COVID-19 EMERGENCY SICK LEAVE AND UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE CHANGES (H 3771) House 157-0, Senate 400, approved and sent to Gov. Baker a bill that would provide qualified workers with up to five days of paid leave for COVID-related emergencies including workers who are sick with the virus, under a quarantine order, recovering from receiving a vaccine or caring for a family member ill with the virus. The measure is also designed to relieve employers this spring from expensive unexpected unemployment system costs. Many businesses were shocked when they saw their first-quarter unemployment contribution bills and found the solvency assessment rate had jumped from 0.58 percent in 2020 to 9.23 percent in 2021, raising costs in many cases by hundreds or thousands of dollars. Under the proposal, the state would shift all COVID-related unemployment claims from the solvency fund into a new COVID claims fund and the solvency fund would revert to its original function. Employers, who fund the state’s jobless aid system, will still be on the hook in the long term, and a COVID-related assessment on businesses will kick into effect for 2021 and 2022. “In order for us to fully recover from the pandemic, all Massachusetts workers need access to emergency paid sick time if they are sick with COVID-19, quarantined or need to care for a sick family member,” said Deb Fastino, Executive Director of the Coalition for Social Justice and a member of the Raise Up Massachusetts Steering Committee. “Many essential frontline workers need paid sick time so they can recover from the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine.” “Massachusetts workers and businesses share the same goal of restoring jobs lost during the COVID pandemic and getting back to work,” said Steve Tolman, president of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO. “By spreading this year’s solvency assessment over the next two decades using already authorized borrowing, the House took the necessary step at this time to enable that continued economic recovery. Moving forward, it is critical that we take a hard look at the way we fund our Unemployment Insurance system to ensure that costs are fairly spread out across businesses; that we build substantial reserves during good economic times in order to weather the bad without relying on costly borrowing; and that workers can continue to count on UI benefits as an economic lifeline to provide for their families and boost the Massachusetts economy.” “The unemployment benefits crisis was directly caused by Gov. Baker’s shutdown of the state’s economy and the Legislature’s failure to act,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “The federal government provided relief with its American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), but the House chose not to use those funds to mitigate the burden the state imposed on employers. It is unconscionable for the state to further abuse devastated businesses when federal funds have been made available to alleviate that pain.” “This proposal is a good step to help provide employers immediate unemployment insurance tax relief, but it is not a long-term solution,” said National Federation of Independent Business’s (NFIB) Massachusetts State Director Christopher Carlozzi. “The state forced businesses to close their doors and rollback operations resulting in widespread layoffs. Because of this, employers alone should not be left to shoulder the entire UI tax burden and policymakers must use some of the billions of dollars in federal aid to help replenish the UI trust fund like so many other states have done.” “This legislation is an important stopgap step to prevent up to 1,600 percent immediate tax increases for Massachusetts employers,” said Jon Hurst, president of the Retailers Association of Massachusetts. “It will amortize the multi-billion-dollar COVID-related claims over 20 years, spreading out, but not eliminating the pain. Still there needs to be a shared responsibility with the government to cover some of the UI Trust Fund debt. The orders, restrictions, messaging, emergency benefits and fraudulent claims were related to government actions, not that of employers. So there still needs to be a determination on how much of the federal relief dollars under either the CARES Act or ARPA will be the government’s responsibility for the debt of approximately $4 billion. Massachusetts will be receiving $4.5 billion under the ARPA. Most other states have used federal COVID relief dollars to reduce the overall UI tax hit for their employers, and Massachusetts must support their small businesses and employers in a similar way.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.)

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021 Page 23 EPD | FROM PAGE 5 Once they established a dialogue with individuals living on the street, the officers found that many of them had been separated from their families or had no family at all. Therefore, these individuals truly appreciated that there was someone out there who “had their back.” However, the winter months created a substantial challenge as many homeless individuals consume larger quantities of alcohol in an effort to stay warm. In one instance, a man was so intoxicated that he stumbled onto the Tobin Bridge onramp during a snowstorm. “He was on my radar,” said Donnelly, adding that the man was known to Everett Police. She said that in addition to the peril of standing on the Tobin Bridge, the temperature was dangerously low. “It was one of those times when it was negative 10 degrees,” said Donnelly. However, the man was rescued by Chelsea Police and was taken to the Everett campus of the Cambridge Health Alliance. Toward the end of the year, Donnelly came across an individual who was confined to a wheelchair. Despite being in an extraordinary amount of pain, the man was still leery about getting medical attention as he feared his belongings would be taken away. However, Donnelly was able to convince the man that his belongings would be secured. He was then taken to the hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery. The man was later admitted to the Barbara McInnis House in Boston. In addition to the Barbara McInnis House, Everett Police also work with the Providing Access to Addictions Treatment, Hope and Support (PAATHS) program in Boston and Recovery Centers of America in Danvers. Yet, there are some individuals who continue to reappear. “It’s a revolving door,” she said, adding that those individuals simply do not want to be helped. Therefore, Donnelly said, additional services are still needed to help Everett’s homeless. “There’s not enough programs that are truly helpful,” she said. “It’s a constant frustration.” MAYOR | FROM PAGE 8 tion was considered, DeMaria said, the cost of making stateof-the-art renovations would be much higher than a housing development. DeMaria also said he does not support the K-8 education model. “I never liked that,” he said, adding that the current Everett High School could be repurposed for students in grades 7-9. The next community meeting will on June 9 at 7 p.m. for Ward 3 residents.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021 Page 25 S y Senior Should You Be Screened Sa e hld a BY JIM MILLER nior B S Senio for Lung Cancer? Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about lung cancer screenings? I was a big smoker but quit years ago, so I’m wondering if I should be checked out. Dear Still, Lung cancer screening is used to detect the presence of lung cancer in otherwise healthy people with a high risk of lung cancer. Should you be screened? It depends on your age and your smoking history. Here’s what you should know. Screening Recommendations The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force – an independent panel of medical experts that advises the government on health policies – recently expanded their recommendations for lung cancer screenings. They are now recommending annual screenings for high-risk adults between the ages of 50 and 80 who have at least a 20-pack year history who currently smoke or who have quit within the past 15 years. This is a change from the 2013 recommendation that referred to patients ages 55 to 80 with 30-year pack histories. A 20-pack year history is the equivalent of smoking one pack a day for 20 years or two packs a day for 10 years. In 2020, lung cancer killed more than 135,000 Americans making it the deadliest of all possible cancers. In fact, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. Lung cancer also occurs predominantly in older adults. About two out of every three people diagnosed with lung cancer are 65 or older. You’ll also be happy to know that most health insurance plans cover lung cancer screenings to high-risk patients, as does Medicare up to age 77. Screening Pros and Cons Doctors use a low-dose computed tomography scan (also called a low-dose CT scan, or LDCT) of the lungs to look for lung cancer. If lung cancer is detected at an early stage, it’s more likely to be cured with treatment. But a LDCT isn’t recommended for every high-risk patient. LDCT scans have a high rate of false positives, which means that many will undergo additional (and unnecessary) screening or medical procedures, such as another scan three, six, or even 12 months later to check for changes in the shape or size of the suspicious area (an indication of tumor growth). For some patients, the anxiety or worry that goes along with waiting can be a real issue. Or you may need a biopsy (removal of a small amount of lung tissue), which has risks, especially for those with underlying health conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or emphysema. For example, in people with emphysema, there’s a chance of a lung collapsing during the procedure. If you meet the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force criteria for high-risk lung cancer, the University of Michigan off ers a free online tool (see ShouldIScreen.com) to help you decide if you should get an LDCT. It’s also important to discuss the benefi ts and risks with your primary care doctor before making a decision. Tips for Testing If you and your doctor determine that you should be screened, look for an imaging facility whose staff follows American College of Radiology requirements when performing low-dose CT scans. You can fi nd accredited facilities at ACRaccreditation.org. This can help to ensure an accurate read of your scans by a highly trained, board-certifi ed or board-eligible radiologist. You may need a referral from your primary care provider. Most insurance companies, including Medicare require this before they’ll cover the cost of screening.

The SECURE Act (Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act) was signed into law on December 20, 2019. A significant provision of the SECURE Act was the repeal of the ability of a designated beneficiary of an IRA account to withdraw the funds over his or her life expectancy. Designated beneficiaries inheriting IRA accounts after 2019 must now withdraw monies from the IRA account within 10 years. The IRS should be issuing proposed Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) regulations soon as a result of the changes made by the SECURE Act. It is no longer necessary to determine the age of the IRA owner at the time of death for distribution purposes as long as the IRA owner dies after 2019 and the beneficiary is a designated beneficiary under the IRA account (a Trust or an individual). For designated beneficiaries subject to the 10-year rule, withdrawals from the IRA account are optional until December 31st of the 10th year following the year of death of the IRA account owner. The new 10-year rule also applies to a successor beneficiary of a designated beneficiary of the original IRA account owner, who inherited an IRA account prior to 2020, but who dies after 2019. A designated beneficiary will establish a beneficiary IRA account and will then select a beneficiary of his or her inherited IRA account. That subsequent beneficiary would be deemed to be a successor beneficiary. If the designated beneficiary, however, had died prior to 2020, then the successor beneficiary would have the right to withdraw the remaining balance of the IRA account over the life expectancy of the designated beneficiary, and not be subject to the 10-year rule. Former Smoker nir ior d “YOUR FINANCIAL FOCUS” JOSEPH D. CATALDO NEW 10-YEAR RULE FOR INHERITED IRA’S Under the SECURE Act, an Eligible designated beneficiary is eligible to withdraw the remaining balance of the inherited IRA account over his or her life expectancy. The following qualify as an Eligible designated beneficiary: • The surviving spouse of the IRA account owner • A child of the IRA account owner who has not yet reached the age of majority. Once the child has reached the age of majority, the child then has 10 years to withdraw the balance in the inherited IRA account • Disabled beneficiary • Chronically ill beneficiary • An individual not falling into A-D who is not more than 10 years younger than the IRA account owner. These are complicated new rules relating to beneficiaries of IRA account owners. However, since IRA accounts are so common, it is important to understand the new rules. 1.

Page 30 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021 BHRC | FROM PAGE 20 House 0-158 (Senate on a voice vote without a roll call) rejected Gov. Baker’s amendment that would exclude municipal employees from the emergency COVID-19 paid leave program. The Baker administration has defended the exclusion of municipal workers arguing that they already have strong leave protections in place and that many municipalities can access federal funds to implement their own leave programs that could align with state and federal leave guarantees. Rep. Josh Cutler, (D-Pembroke), House chair of the Committee on Labor and Workforce Development disagreed with Baker. “As the speaker has made clear, the House stands firm in supporting COVID emergency paid leave for all Massachusetts workers,” said Cutler. “That includes our municipal employees, the teachers, police officers, firefighters, health agents, janitors, veterans’ agents and many others who have been essential to our state’s COVID-19 response. Further, our actions today to address unemployment solvency account rates will help stem rising costs for employers and small businesses.” House GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading) also disagreed with Baker, a fellow Republican. “Having access to emergency paid sick leave is essential to workers who are recovering from the coronavirus, caring for a family member or trying to schedule their vaccination,” Jones said. “Municipal employees—including essential frontline workers like police and firefighters—have also faced numerous challenges created by the COVID-19 global pandemic, and the House’s vote will ensure that they are also entitled to the same paid sick leave benefits as other non-municipal workers.” (A “No” vote is against the amendment and favors including municipal employees.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle No 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 late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of May 1721, the House met for a total of ten hours and eight minutes while the Senate met for a total of six hours and 22 minutes. Mon. May 17 House 11:00 a.m. to 1:04 p.m. Senate 11:11 a.m. to 1:08 p.m. Tues. May 18 House 11:01 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. No Senate session Wed. May 19 No House session No Senate session Thurs.
