DiDomenico secures more than $135M for district projects in Transportation Bond Bill S enator Sal DiDomenico and his colleagues in the State Senate recently passed a $17 billion Transportation Bond Bill to fund major transportation infrastructure projects across the Commonwealth in order to modernize, expand and maintain our transportation system. “This bill places an emphasis on regional equity and accessibility when it comes to transportation, something that is much needed at a time like this,” said DiDomenico. “Equal access to transportation is intrinsically connected with equal access to economic opportunity, and this bill seeks to increase this accessibility through major infrastructure improvements while also creating jobs to help those populations who have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic and plagued by economic uncertainty.” Within the bill, DiDomenico successfully secured funding for his district (parts of Middlesex and Suffolk Counties) by helping include language that allocates $108 million for transportation improvements in the West End of Boston by relocating a portion of Storrow Drive and its access ramps to Charles Circle. In addition, DiDomenico filed several amendments that were adopted into the final bill, including $2.5 million to assist with improvements to the Sweetster Circle section of Everett. “One of my top priorities was making sure our district received the necessary funds to invest in these key development projects, particularly in those areas that have long been in need of improveSal DiDomenico State Senator ments,” said DiDomenico. “It is critical that even during this period of financial hardship and uncertainty, we take the time to invest in modern, reliable infrastructure and create jobs at the same time. I am pleased that this funding will be made available for the City of Everett to continue improvements to Sweetser Circle.” DiDomenico also successfully secured an amendment concerning “micromobility.” The amendment ensures that e-bikes are adequately regulated by classifying them separately from combustion-engine vehicles. DiDomenico has been working closely with the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition on e-bike legislation this session, and language from his bill (S.2071) was included to the final version of the bond bill passed by the Senate. “This important legislation is the culmination of tireless efforts by several organizations, especially MassBike,” said DiDomenico. “This is an important priority for my district, and I am confident these micromobility measures will put us on par with other states in ensuring that e-bikes are adequately regulated, and our roads remain safe.” In addition, DiDomenico secured an additional $20 million to improve access to bus lanes in his district through Charlestown, Chelsea and Everett. This has been a priority for many communities in DiDomenico’s district, and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation has been a strong partner in this endeavor. The bill, An Act authorizing and accelerating transportation investment, authorizes funding for a wide variety of infrastructure projects, including both upkeep and maintenance as well as modernization. In addition to addressing issues such as construction, regional initiatives, traffic congestion, and transportation network company data sharing, this legislation addresses equity in the transportation system by requiring a low-income fare program which will provide discounted transit fares to qualifying riders on MBTA transportation and commuter rail, starting on January 1, 2022. The bill represents an important step in reducing traffic congestion, and tasks the Department of Transportation with collecting new information and creating expert-driven plans to respond to the issue. These include seeking federal approval to join the Value Pricing Pilot Program, which provides state agencies with options to manage congestion. The bill must now be reconciled with legislation previously passed by the Massachusetts House of Representatives. Federal judge dismisses lawsuit against Wynn By Christopher Roberson chusetts Gaming Commission. After being filed in SeptemT he sexual harassment lawsuit against casino tycoon Stephen Wynn was recently dropped in federal court. The case was based on claims made by nine women that Wynn Resorts, the owner of Encore Boston Harbor, had knowledge of the alleged harassment and still failed to act. In February 2018, the allegations compelled Wynn to resign as chairman and chief executive of Wynn Resorts, positions he had held for 16 years. One year later, the company was fined $20 million by the Nevada Gaming Control Board and $35 million by the Massaber 2019, the order to dismiss the lawsuit was handed down on July 15 by U.S. District Judge James Mahan. In their complaint, the women identified themselves as Judy Doe No. 1 through Judy No. 9. They maintained that using their real names would put them at risk for legal retribution by Wynn. “Although plaintiffs wish to preserve their anonymity, this causes several deficiencies in their claims against the Wynn defendants,” Mahan said in his order, adding that they did not provide valid reasons for remaining anonymous. Mahan said the plaintiffs also used “generalized and vague statements without individualized factual support for their allegations,” adding that the women needed to present individual facts rather than file a collective pleading. “Though plaintiffs all allege sexual harassment by Steve Wynn, the individualized acts of sexual harassment – are separate transactions or occurrences that must be appropriately pled in order to comply with rule,” he said. However, the case was dismissed without prejudice, meaning the plaintiffs have the option of refiling the lawsuit. Prices subject to change GOD BLESS AMERICA! FLEET

McGonagle’s reelection campaign T he Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA) endorsed State Representative Joseph McGonagle’s reelection campaign. The MNA represents more than 23,000 frontline nurses and healthcare professionals across the state, including those at Everett Hospital of Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA). “Representative McGonagle has stood with nurses and patients and we are proud to stand with him as he seeks reelection to represent the people of the 28th Middlesex District,” said MNA President Donna Kelly-Williams. McGonagle recently made Joseph McGonagle State Representative a visit to CHA Everett Hospital, where he spoke to a group of nurses. “What our nurses have done to protect our community is a selfless act I cannot understand,” said McGonagle. “They sacrifi ce so much to keep their loved ones, colleagues and neighbors out of harm’s way… Our nurses have shown the best of Everett and Massachusetts during the pandemic. I am humbled to have their support. They deserve nothing but the best and I am grateful to be in a position where I can give them as much support as possible. Thank you, Redevelopment projects on horizon for Tremont and Elm Streets properties By Christopher Roberson T he Planning Board recently reviewed site plans for the proposed redevelopment projects at 110 Tremont St. and 178180 Elm St. Attorney Paul Delory, representing the applicant Kaura LLC, said his client would like to redevelop the two-story mixeduse building at 178-180 Elm St. The plan calls for adding a third floor and constructing eight apartments with each unit being “345-500” square feet. Delory said the current building is approximately 128 years old and has developed a “tired” look. “It needs a design upgrade,” he said during the board’s July 20 meeting. Although no parking is available, Delory said the building fi ts in nicely with the other mixed-use structures in that part of Everett. “That little section of Elm Street is almost like a little village unto itself,” he said. Delory also said that in May 2019 the project was presented to the Board of Appeals, which voted unanimously to grant a number of “variances and special permits.” However, Planning Board Member Leo Pizzano took issue with the building’s proposed appearance. “We’re kind of sick and tired of looking at these buildings with Hardie board on them,” he said. “They’re about as boring as they come, this building is no exception.” Therefore, Pizzano suggested using brick on 20 percent of the façade in accordance with the Everett Design Guidelines. “It should look like something,” he said. Pizzano also addressed the lack of parking on the site. “No parking is not the way to go,” he said. “What do you do when a tenant has a car?” At 110 Tremont St., applicant Gregory Antonelli is looking to convert the former industrial building on the property into a two-story, 48-unit apartment building. He said each unit would be a one-bedroom residence. Pizzano was surprised to learn that there was no need to present the project to the Board of Appeals. “It seems like there’s a lot of grandfathering going on here,” he said. As with the Elm Street project, Pizzano recommended having brick on the building’s façade. “I have no problem with the 20 percent brick,” said Antonelli. He also said he would be willing to construct a stonewall as a buff er for the abutters and to put in storage areas for bicycles. 505 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 Tel: 617-387-1120 www.gkdental.com • Family Dentistry • Crowns • Bridges • Veneers/Lumineers • Dental Implants • All on 4 Dental Implants • Emergency Dentist • Kid Friendly Dentist • Root Canals • Dentures • Invisalign Braces • Snap On Smile • Teeth Whitening We are the smile care experts for your entire family www.eight10barandgrille.com We Have Reopened for Dine-In and Outside Seating every day beginning at 4 PM President Donna Kelly-Williams, for your hard work and your support!” As an elected offi cial, McGonagle brings a wealth of experience, including his time in public service and as a small business owner, to advocate for the hardworking residents of Everett.

Page 4 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, July 24, 2020 Full-service salon opens on Broadway A new full-service salon officially opened its doors in Everett on July 8. The Mirage Salon, which is located at 572 Broadway, features a contemporary atmosphere, and its patrons can receive blowouts, hair coloring, waxing and nail services as well as other health, beauty and personal care services. At just 23 years old, owner Juliana Granado officially assumed ownership of Mirage during Phase 1 of Governor Charlie Baker’s Reopening Plan. Despite being in the midst of an economic downturn where small businesses across the country are struggling, it didn’t deter Granado from opening the salon. “I believe in this motto: It doesn’t have to be perfect to be done, you just have to do it and perfect it along the way,” said Granado. “A lot of kids think they have to meet a certain criteria, and that prevents them from getting started.” Granado began doing hair at the age of 14 in Brazil, where she had a plethora of high-profile clients before she moved to America in February 2019. Prior to owning her own business, she worked at a hair salon on Ferry Street. During the grand opening, city Communications Director Deanna Deveney presented Granado with a citation from Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “I was humbled and welcomed,” said Granado. “It’s tough to be in business these days, but receiving the support of the mayor shows that you have people behind you and the city has your back.” Granado said she started her business in Everett because the city’s diversity provides her with the opportunity to reach many different cultures. She also added that she wanted to be a part of Everett’s growing businesses community. Granado and her husband, Valdir, are members of Everett’s Universal Church, where they lead a youth power group, working with hundreds of kids throughout the city. Appointments can be booked by calling the salon at 857-526-2032. Juliana Granado, owner of the Mirage Salon on Broadway, prepares to cut the ribbon during the salon’s grand opening on July 8. She is joined by, from left to right, Leny Nascimente, Milena Oliveira, Isabela Caroline, Valdir Granado, Ward 2 Councillor Stephanie Martins, Everett Director of Communications Deanna Deveney, Communications Assistant Michelle Fenelon and Human Resources Director Lara Wehbe.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, July 24, 2020 Page 5 Night Shift Brewing shares post-pandemic proposals By Christopher Roberson L ooking beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, Matthew Eshelman, Quality and Facilities manager of Night Shift Brewing, recently went before the Board of License Commissioners to request a wine and malt pouring permit as well as authorization for an alteration of premise. As part of the pouring permit, Eshelman said, he would also like to produce wine onsite. Regarding the alteration of premise, he said he would like the patio to be a permanent serving location and that renderings have already been submitted to the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission (ABCC). However, Eshelman acknowledged that large scale events would not be happening anytime soon. “We’re not going to throw any events until the coronavirus crisis is over,” he said during the board’s July 20 meeting. “We’re looking forward to 2021, 2022.” Although Chairman Philip Antonelli did not object to Eshelman’s requests, he said Night Shift needs to do a better job communicating with the board. “Anytime Night Shift Brewing has an issue or a problem, I find out about it after the fact,” said Antonelli, adding that the lack of communication has made it challenging to have informed conversations with the ABCC. “Anything you guys do, please let us know.” The board did not vote on either request as they have not yet been properly advertised. In addition, Eshelman said a number of restaurants in Boston are allowed to serve beers from a centrally located patio table. Therefore, he began asking if the same arrangement would be possible at Night Shift. However, Antonelli cut him off at the pass. “Matt, we can stop right there,” he said. “All beers have to stay where they are; we’re not making exceptions to the rules right now. This is still a gray area; if I allow you then I have to allow other people, and I don’t want to open a Pandora's Box.” Patio needed at Tres Gatos In other news, Chef Ozzie of Tres Gatos Restaurant and Bar was reminded by Antonelli that he cannot use his patio because of recent complaints from neighborhood residents. Although he agreed it would be easier to keep customers inside, Ozzie said there is a growing need to have the patio open. “Customers come in and they ask for the patio; it’s been so tough,” he said. “I don’t want to use the patio but it’s not an option for me – we cannot survive without the patio.” Ozzie said the patio is 43 feet long by 10 feet wide and can accommodate four tables. In response, Antonelli said that to comply with social distancing requirements, no more than three tables could be on the patio. Although the patio will remain closed for the time being, Antonelli said the board would review the matter further and get back to Ozzie about allowing outdoor dining. Al Borgonzi retires from City Hall O n July 20, Mayor Carlo DeMaria presented Al Borgonzi with a citation after he officially retired from serving the City of Everett. Borgonzi personally contacted DeMaria in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and volunteered to retire in order to save someone else’s job during the city’s layoffs. “I don’t know too many people who would do what Al did,” DeMaria said. “His selfless act blew me away. I want to wish him a retirement filled with happiness. Our doors will always be open to Al.” Borgonzi worked for the city during Mayor On July 20, Al Borgonzi was joined by Mayor Carlo DeMaria and his City Hall colleagues to receive a citation after retiring.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, July 24, 2020 Page 7 ~ Editorial & Opinion ~ Uber and Lyft continue to have unfair advantage over taxi companies F or the past 11 years, taxi companies that have been around for decades have been struggling to compete with rideshare companies, most notably, Uber Technologies, Inc. and Lyft, Inc. We believe that healthy business competition is good for the consumer; however, there needs to be a level playing fi eld. That has not been the case with the taxi and rideshare companies. Unlike the taxi companies, Uber and Lyft are somehow exempt from state regulations. We also agree with the lawsuit recently fi led by Attorney General Maura Healey maintaining that Uber and Lyft drivers are employees rather than independent contractors. Therefore, they should be protected under the state’s wage and hour laws. This protection would grant them the right to receive minimum wage, overtime pay and earned sick time. “Uber and Lyft have built their billion-dollar businesses while denying their drivers basic employee protections and benefi ts for years,” said Healey. “This business model is unfair and exploitative. We are seeking this determination from the court because these drivers have a right to be treated fairly.” Why this has not been the case right along is beyond comprehension. Market them anyway you want, but at the end of the day, Uber and Lyft are also taxi companies. Last year alone, Uber reported revenue of $14.1 billion while Lyft reported revenue of $3.6 billion. Clearly, they can aff ord to treat their employees fairly and obey the state’s regulations. AUTOTECH 1989 SINCE Is Your Vehicle Blowing Hot Air on Hot Days?!!

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, July 24, 2020 Page 9 Over 200 community, labor and religious group call for Emergency Housing Stability Bill W ith the Massachusetts eviction and foreclosure moratorium currently set to expire on August 18 and the legislative session expected to end July 31, over 200 community, labor and religious organizations have signed a letter to House Speaker Robert DeLeo, Senate President Karen Spilka and Governor Charlie Baker urging them to pass An Act to guarantee housing stability during the COVID-19 emergency and recovery. The bill is sponsored by 89 members of the state legislature, which is nearly half of its members. Proponents say it is the only way to head off an enormous wave of evictions when the current moratorium ends. The state’s eviction/foreclosure moratorium was enacted in April in response to the COVID-19 crisis; State Housing Court officials and landlord advocates predict up to 20,000 eviction cases as soon as it ends. The expiration of increased unemployment payments under the federal CARES Act on July 31 will put even more tenants at risk. months, to prevent foreclosures and provide mortgage deferment options for homeowners and to stabilize landlords with particular emphasis on owner-occupant and small-scale property owners.

Page 10 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, July 24, 2020 Save the Harbor/Save the Bay releases Water Quality Report Card O n Wednesday, July 22, the environmental advocacy organization Save the Harbor/Save the Bay released its annual Metropolitan Beaches Water Quality Report Card, using data from the 2019 beach season. In 2019 weekly water quality testing at Boston’s regional beaches began on May 23. Supplemental daily testing of Constitution Beach, King’s Beach, Malibu Beach, Tenean Beach and Wollaston Beach began on June 13. Testing concluded on September 1. The scores reflect the percent of samples that complied with the single sample limit for bacteria of the state Department of Public Health (DPH) – the most straightforward way of evaluating beach water quality and potential impacts on human health. In 2019 the overall water quality safety rating for Boston Harbor’s regional beaches owned by the Commonwealth and managed by the state Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR) was 88 percent, a decline from the previous year’s score of 94 percent. Changes in the intensity and frequency of summer storms often explain the variations seen on our beaches from year to year. These seasonal variations are why Save the Harbor/Save the Bay is reluctant to draw conclusions from a single year’s sampling results, preferring to rely on the multiyear average that is included in this report. Last year was one of the wettest years on record for Massachusetts, part of the wettest 12-month stretch in the state’s 124 years of record keeping. Some summer storms dropped a month’s worth of rain in just a few hours. It was a summer of extremes, with July also being The latest Water Quality Report Card from Save the Harbor/Save the Bay shows a safety rating of 88 percent for the state’s metropolitan beaches. (Photo Courtesy of Save the Harbor/Save the Bay) the hottest one on record, making beach accessibility even more critical to the region’s residents. In 2019 four of the region’s 15 public beaches (Carson Beach, M Street Beach, City Point Beach and Pleasure Bay, all in South Boston) achieved A.B.C.

Three area beaches (Nahant Beach, Constitution Beach in East Boston and Nantasket Beach in Hull) scored between 90 percent and 97 percent. Four area beaches (Short Beach in Revere and Winthrop, Revere Beach in Revere, Wollaston Beach in Quincy and Malibu Beach in Dorchester) scored between 83 percent and 88 percent, while four area beaches (Savin Hill Beach in Dorchester, Winthrop Beach in Winthrop, King’s Beach in Lynn and Swampscott and Tenean Beach in Dorchester) scored less than 80 percent in 2019.

Only $43.95 STORE HOURS 8 AM - 7 PM Mon. - Sat., Sun. 8 AM - 6 PM the area beach posting and flagging program, in which bacteria testing triggers advisories, is that postings are always a day late because beach managers must wait 24 to 36 hours after a sample is collected to obtain test results. Beach water quality might have already changed significantly during this period, and the prior day’s test does not necessarily reflect current conditions. In 2019, DPH made changes to the beach posting protocols, which resulted in 39 additional days when area beaches were incorrectly flagged as unsafe for swimming, including over the Fourth of July weekend. While Save the Harbor/Save the Bay recognize the importance of protecting public health, the current system is severely flawed and needs to be improved. Although Save the Harbor/Save the Bay had hoped to resolve this situation before the start of the 2020 beach season, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced public agencies, advocates and other stakeholders to – rightly – direct their attention and resources to other pressing public health concerns. As Save the Harbor continues to address the impacts of systemic racism that has too often prevented people of color from fully enjoying the benefits of our shared $5 billion investment in clean water, it is important to note that access to these urban beaches is particularly important to the region’s low-income and Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) residents. Later this year and early next year, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay will host three forums and a conference on the future of our public beaches, to help our community partners in waterfront neighborhoods and beachfront communities address systemic racism, sea level rise, and the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, all of which threaten public health and safety. Working with their policy partners at the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, the state Department of Environmental Protection and DCR, Save the Harbor will also convene a public meeting of their Beaches Science Advisory Committee, to create a shared understanding and consensus among stakeholders and regulators on how to best address the inadequate and inaccurate posting protocols, to both protect public health and preserve public access to clean water. In the interim, instead of simply relying on postings and flags, Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay urges beachgoers to also rely on common sense and the multiyear average included in this report to decide when and where it is safe to swim. And when you are on the beach, be sure to wear a mask and observe the guidance for social distancing – to protect yourself and your community from COVID-19.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, July 24, 2020 ~ letter to the Editor ~ Page 11 Everett Education Coalition weighs in on anti-racism solidarity with students Dear Editor: We, the members of the Everett Education Coalition (EEC), are deeply disturbed and saddened by the continuing racism and extrajudicial violence against Black people in the United States. Breonna Taylor, Ahmad Arbery, George Floyd and Elijah McClain – among countless others – are victims of an unchecked system of white supremacy in our country. This systemic injustice is widespread and deeply felt. Many of us joined our neighbors in protests and vigils against police brutality and wondered how we could dismantle the systems that make this national issue so intractable. Yet we would be amiss to only focus on the systemic national issues and not organize locally around the real hurt and pain that these injustices create – particularly at school – expressed by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous or Person of Color) youth in Everett. Many of us attended A Moment to Breathe: A Black Youth Vigil, organized by Everett High School (EHS) alumni Lorna Closeil and Fanelson Monexant, along with recent graduates and current students. It was a tribute to the organizing power and resilience of Black students in our community. A small group of EEC members met with some EHS alumni and learned of their plans to meet with Everett High School teachers, administration, School Committee members, and Superintendent Priya Tahiliani to discuss specific and concrete antiracist solutions within EHS, among other problems. We asked how to support and amplify this work; they answered that it was essential to see that the community stands with them. We write this statement in solidarity with all students facing racial injustice in Everett – they should know that they do not stand alone. Many of us in EEC are educators and parents ourselves; we recognize that the educators of the Everett Public Schools are effective, committed, and care deeply for every single one of their students. Yet we also know that systemic racism is insidious and can blend seamlessly into the fabric of a school building, and that intent is not the same as impact. If youth in our community are hurting from racial injustice, it does not matter if we “didn’t mean it,” “mean well” or “didn’t know better.” The responsibility lies with us to fix it. We write this to amplify and support the needs of the students, including: • Stakeholders should specifically name racism and its structural manifestations, including police brutality and the schoolto-prison pipeline, and avoid the “toxic positivity” of proclaiming that structural racism is not a problem in Everett. • Concrete actions to address structural racism in schools, particularly the lack of racial and ethnic diversity among faculty. Such measures could include sustained work to attract and retain more BIPOC educators. • Concrete actions to provide adequate professional development to Everett staff dedicated to anti-racism work – such as understanding and identifying implicit bias and racial micro aggressions – and other culturally and socially relevant training. • Accountability around experiences of gender-based bias and pervasive sexual assault and harassment in schools, including a system for students to report gender-based bias and sexual harassment to a trained adult and receive adequate support. • Increased transparency and communication in regards to responding to reports of racism and discrimination expressed by faculty and students. There needs to be accountability in addressing public and private affairs with a clear code of conduct being set in the Student and Teacher Handbooks. The staff contract should delineate specific actions that will be taken for any racist statements or actions, especially in the case that faculty or students have expressed harm surrounding said statements or actions. We support a vision of the Everett Public Schools where: • Students can freely express their ideas and concerns in a safe and supportive environment. • Students feel their cultures and identities are understood, respected, and represented by their educators, administrators and support staff. • The current demographics of the Everett community drive curricular and instructional decisions and these decisions are regularly revisited, discussed, and improved upon. Thankfully, there are members of Everett beginning to pick up this critical work to dismantle systemic racism. We commend the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Subcommittee introduced by School Committee member Marcony Almeida-Barros and joined by School Committee members Dana Murray and Samantha Lambert. We ask that the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Sub-Committee meet regularly with youth in the Everett Public Schools to make sure that they implement and enforce relevant measures to address ongoing issues. We appreciate the work of Superintendent Priya Tahiliani and her action plan to address racism within the Everett Public Schools. We appreciate that Mayor Carlo DeMaria declared systemic racism a public health emergency in Everett and has convened an advisory board to audit the city’s practices around policing. We additionally suggest that the advisory board include and actively solicit feedback from students who have experienced racism in Everett. We are happy to see these first steps – but they will be just that without action. We cannot be complacent, and this work is far from being done.

Page 14 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, July 24, 2020 IRS unveils “Dirty Dozen” list of tax scams T he Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently announced its annual “Dirty Dozen” list of tax scams with a special emphasis on aggressive and evolving schemes related to COVID-19 tax relief, including the Economic Impact Payment (EIP). This year the Dirty Dozen focuses on scams that target taxpayers. The criminals behind these bogus schemes view everyone as potentially easy prey. The IRS urges everyone to be on guard all the time and look out for others in their lives. The IRS urges taxpayers to refrain from engaging potential scammers online or on the phone. “Tax scams tend to rise during tax season or during times of crisis, and scam artists are using the pandemic to try stealing money and information from honest taxpayers,” said IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig. “The IRS provides the Dirty Dozen list to help raise awareness about common scams that fraudsters use to target people. We urge people to watch out for these scams. The IRS is doing its part to protect Americans. We will relentlessly pursue criminals trying to steal your money or sensitive personal ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ CITY OF EVERETT PURCHASING DEPARTMENT financial information.” “To try to avoid becoming a victim of a scam, education, awareness and healthy skepticism are key”, said the Special Agent in Charge of the IRS Criminal Investigation Division in the New England Region, Kristina O’Connell. “If you find yourself falling victim to any of these schemes, report it immediately. IRS Criminal Investigation and its law enforcement partners investigate these cases so the criminals perpetrating the schemes might be brought to justice.” Taxpayers are encouraged INVITATION FOR BIDS Sealed bids for furnishing the following ITEMS will be received at the Office of the Purchasing Department, City Hall, 19 Norman Street, Everett, MA 02149, until the time specified below at which time the bids will be publicly opened and read: ITEM Bid: 2020 Mill and Overlay Street Sections BID OPENING August 13, 2020, 10:00 AM Local Time Work shall consist of milling and overlaying existing sections of streets at various locations throughout the City of Everett at the direction of the Executive Director of Public Works & Engineering or his representative.

City of Everett Robert Moreschi Chief Procurement Agent Phone: 617-394-2288, Fax: 617-394-2339 July 24, 2020 to review the list in a special section on IRS.gov and to be on the lookout for these scams throughout the year. Taxpayers should also remember that they are legally responsible for what is on their tax return even if it is prepared by someone else. Consumers can help protect themselves by choosing a reputable tax preparer. The IRS plans to unveil a similar list of enforcement and compliance priorities this year as well. An upcoming series of press releases will emphasize the illegal schemes and techniques businesses and individuals use to avoid paying their lawful tax liability. Topics will include such scams as abusive micro-captives and fraudulent conservation easements. Here are this year’s Dirty Dozen scams: Ph i sh i ng : Taxpayers should be alert to potential fake e-mails or websites looking to steal personal information. The IRS will never initiate contact with taxpayers via e-mail about a tax bill, refund or EIP. Don’t click on links claiming to be from the IRS. Be wary of e-mails and websites − they might be nothing more than scams to steal personal information. IRS Criminal Investigation has seen a tremendous increase in phishing schemes using e-mails, letters, texts and links. These phishing schemes are using keywords, such as “coronavirus,” “COVID-19” and “Stimulus,” in various ways. These schemes are blasted to large numbers of people to get personal identifying information or financial account information, including account numbers and passwords. Most of these new schemes are actively playing on the fear and unknown of the virus and the stimulus payments. (For more info see IR-2020-115.) Fake charities: Criminals frequently exploit natural disasters and other adverse situations, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic, by setting up fake charities to steal from well-intentioned people trying to help in times of need. Fake charity scams generally rise during times like these. Such fraudulent schemes normally start with “DIRTY DOZEN” | SEE PAGE 15

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, July 24, 2020 Page 15 T MassFiscal responds to state’s 17 percent unemployment rate, worst in the nation recover and get workers back he Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance (MassFiscal) recently issued the following statement in response to news that Massachusetts has the highest unemployment rate in the country at 17.4 percent. This is the highest unemployment rate for the state since 1976. Over the past several months, MassFiscal has consistently warned lawmakers on the economic dangers of raising taxes and asked them to instead focus on ways to help the economy “DIRTY DOZEN” | FROM PAGE 14 unsolicited contact by telephone, text, social media, e-mail or in person using a variety of tactics. Bogus websites use names like those of legitimate charities to trick people to send money or provide personal financial information. They might even claim to be working for or on behalf of the IRS to help victims file casualty loss claims and get tax refunds. Taxpayers should be particularly wary of charities with names like nationally known organizations. Legitimate charities will provide their Employer Identification Number (EIN), if requested, which can be used to verify their legitimacy. Taxpayers can find legitimate and qualified charities with the search tool on IRS.gov. Threatening impersonator phone calls: IRS impersonation scams come in many forms. A common one remains bogus threatening phone calls from a criminal claiming to be with the IRS. The scammer attempts to instill fear and urgency in the potential victim. In fact, the IRS will never threaten a taxpayer or surprise him or her with a demand for immediate payment. Phone scams or “vishing” (voice phishing) pose a major threat. Scam phone calls, including those threatening arrest, deportation or license revocation if the victim doesn’t pay a bogus tax bill, are reported year-round. These calls often take the form of a robocall (a text-tospeech recorded message with instructions for returning the call). The IRS will never demand immediate payment, threaten, ask for financial information over the phone or call about an unexpected refund or EIP. Taxpayers should contact the real IRS if they worry about having a tax problem. Social media scams: Taxon the job. “The last time Massachusetts workers faced such extreme job loss was in 1976. Elvis was still alive and Star Wars hadn’t yet been released. Voters were frustrated enough to vote for Jimmy Carter for President and his big-government, pro-tax policies led to four more years of continued job loss and economic misery. Ultimately, it paved the way for eight years of Ronald Reagan. You would think that payers need to protect themselves against social media scams, which frequently use events like COVID-19 to try tricking people. Social media enables anyone to share information with anyone else on the Internet. Scammers use that information as ammunition for a wide variety of scams. These include e-mails where scammers impersonate someone’s family, friends or coworkers. Social media scams have also led to tax-related identity theft. The basic element of social media scams is convincing a potential victim that he or she is dealing with a trustworthy friend via e-mail, text or social media messaging. Using personal information, a scammer might e-mail a potential victim and include a link to something of interest to the recipient which contains malware intended to commit more crimes. Scammers also infiltrate their victim’s e-mails and cell phones to go after their friends and family with fake e-mails that appear to be real and text messages soliciting, for example, small donations to fake charities that are appealing to the victims. Economic Impact Payment or refund theft: The IRS has made great strides against refund fraud and theft in recent years, but they remain an ongoing threat. Criminals this year also turned their attention to stealing EIPs as provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Much of this stems from identity theft whereby criminals file false tax returns or supply other bogus information to the IRS to divert refunds to wrong addresses or bank accounts. The IRS recently warned nursing homes and other care facilities that EIPs generally belong to the recipients, not the organizations providing the care. This came following concerns that people reason enough for lawmakers to avoid any tax increases with less than two weeks before the legislative session is set to expire, but sadly it’s not,” said MassFiscal Spokesperson/Board Member Paul Craney. He added, “Massachusetts is now suffering from the worst unemployment numbers in the country. Usually when we come in number one, Beacon Hill leaders call in the duck boats and throw a parade. Instead, the State Senand businesses might be taking advantage of vulnerable populations who received the payments. These payments do not count as a resource for determining eligibility for Medicaid and other federal programs. They also do not count as income in determining eligibility for these programs. (See IR-2020-121 for more info.) Taxpayers can consult the Coronavirus Tax Relief page of IRS.gov for assistance in getting their EIPs. Anyone who believes they might be a victim of identity theft should consult the Taxpayer Guide to Identity Theft on IRS.gov. Senior fraud: Senior citizens and those who care about them need to be on the alert for tax scams targeting older Americans. Along with the Department of Justice and FBI, the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), among others, the IRS recognizes the pervasiveness of fraud targeting older Americans. Seniors are more likely to be targeted and victimized by scammers. Financial abuse of seniors is a problem among personal and professional relationships. Anecdotal evidence across professional services indicates that elder fraud goes down substantially when the service provider knows a trusted friend or family member is taking an interest in the senior’s affairs. Older Americans are becoming more comfortable with evolving technologies, such as social media. Unfortunately, that gives scammers another means of taking advantage. Phishing scams linked to COVID-19 have been a major threat this filing season. Seniors need to be alert for a continuing surge of fake e-mails, text messages, websites and social media attempts to steal personal information. Scams targeting non-Enate passed a new tax scheme which allows cities and towns to circumvent Proposition 2½. The House is eager to see their regressive gas tax hike go through, and the Governor’s office still reaffirms its support for a regional gas tax scheme called TCI [Transportation Climate Initiative], despite the fact that not a single other state wants to join.” “With only 11 days to go, it’s time for State House leaders to end their pre-Coronavirus fantasies of higher taxglish speakers: IRS impersonators and other scammers also target groups with limited English proficiency. These scams are often threatening in nature. Some scammers also target those potentially receiving an EIP and request personal or financial information from the taxpayer. Phone scams pose a major threat to people with limited access to information, including individuals not entirely comfortable with the English language. These calls frequently take the form of a “robocall” (a text-to-speech es and more spending. They have an opportunity to help get people back to work and they can start by getting in touch with reality. People are hurting. They are out of work at a level we haven’t seen in generations.

There’s only 11 days left in the session, but Beacon Hill leaders are still more than capable of exponentially compounding our misery,” said Craney. recorded message with instructions for returning the call), but in some cases they might be made by a real person. These con artists might have some of the taxpayer’s information, including their address, the last four digits of their Social Security number or other personal details – making the phone calls seem more legitimate.

My 80-year-old mother has been isolating herself for months now in fear of the coronavirus and I haven’t been able to see her face-to-face in quite a while. Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, Video chatting is a great way to stay connected and keep tabs on an elder parent when you can’t be there, but it’s even more important now during this pandemic as many isolated seniors are also suff ering from chronic loneliness. To help connect you and your mom virtually, there are various products on the market that off er simple video calling for seniors who have limited ability or experience with technology. Here are four devices to consider. GrandPad: This is a top option for simple video calling, and much more. The GrandPad is an 8-inch tablet specifi cally designed for seniors, ages 75 and older. It comes with a stylus, a charging cradle and 4G LTE built-in so it works anywhere within the Consumer Cellular network – home Wi-Fi is not required. Ready to go right out of the box, GrandPad provides a simplifi ed menu of big icons and large text for only essential features, providing clutter-free, one-touch access to make and receive video calls, send voice emails, view photos and videos, listen to personalized music, check the weather, play games, browse the Internet and more. A GrandPad tablet costs $250 plus $40 monthly service fee and is sold through Consumer Cellular at GrandPad.net or call 888-545-1425. Amazon’s Echo Show: With its built-in camera and screen, the voice-command Echo Show also provides a simple way to have face-to-face chats with your mom, but she’ll need home Wi-Fi installed. Echo Shows, which come in three screen sizes – 5-inch ($90), 8-inch ($130) and 10-inch ($230), will let your mom make and receive video calls to those who have their own device, or who have the Alexa app installed on their smartphone or tablet.

By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives' votes on roll calls from the week of July 13-17. There were no roll calls in the House last week. CHANGES IN POLICING (S. 2800) Senate 30-7, approved and sent to the House a bill making major changes in the state’s policing system. The measure creates a Police Offi cer Standards and Accreditation Committee (POSAC)—an independent state entity composed of law enforcement professionals, community members and racial justice advocates—to standardize the certifi cation, training and decertifi cation of police offi cers. Other provisions ban chokeholds that are performed with the intent of or with the result of causing unconsciousness or death; ban other deadly uses of force except in cases of imminent harm; require the use of de-escalation tactics when feasible; create a duty to intervene for offi cers who witness abuse of force; limit qualifi ed immunity defense for offi cers whose conduct violates the law; expand and strengthen police training in de-escalation, racism and intervention tactics; and ban racial profi ling, require racial data collection for all police stops and require reporting and analysis. “We have lots of wonderful police officers, and I am grateful for their service,” said Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). “But we cannot turn a blind eye to the problems that do exist in the state which have been so recently documented by the United States Department of Justice. Nor should we pretend that those problems are the only problems in the state. This legislation is long overdue and I’m glad we are moving forward.” “I voted no because the bill that was brought before the Senate was hastily written and then pushed through to a vote in less than a week,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton). “These actions result in a fl awed product with multiple unintended consequences. For example, the language in this bill signifi cantly dilutes and diminishes qualifi ed immunity, not just for law enforcement offi cers, but for all municipal employees. Additionally, the bill would make it illegal for police and school administrations to communicate about gang and drug-related activity occurring in the school district, in turn making our schools and students less safe.” "This bill is a vital step towards a new vision of public safety: one that’s built on accountability, de-escalation, and care," said Sen. Sonia Chang-Díaz (D-Boston). "It begins the long, necessary work of shifting power and resources to black communities and communities of color who have, for too long, faced criminalization and punishment instead of investment." “In my opinion, we don’t know enough about how changing these standards of qualifi ed immunity and collective bargaining will aff ect law enforcement, municipal employees, court systems, and labor unions in our state,” said Sen. John Velis (D-Westfi eld). “I believe we need subject-matter experts to help inform us and make recommendations, in order to be absolutely certain that we are meeting the goals of our legislation without any unintended consequences. That being said, I also believe that there is a lot of good work accomplished in this legislation, and I fully intend and hope to vote for a conference committee bill that accomplishes our goals and will be signed by the governor.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes STUDY QUALIFIED IMMUNITY (S. 2800) Senate 16-24, rejected an amendment striking a section of the bill which sets new limits on qualifi ed immunity protections that currently shield police and other government officials from civil suits. The amendment would replace the section with a special commission to study the state’s current qualified immunity Beacon Hill Roll Call and report back to the Legislature within six months. Qualifi ed immunity is a judicially-created legal doctrine established by the U.S. Supreme Court. Under current qualifi ed immunity, police offi cers and other government offi cials can only be held accountable in civil suits for violating someone’s rights if a court has previously ruled that it was “clearly established” those precise actions were unconstitutional. Supporters of the study said they are not saying that qualified immunity should exist without some change nor that it should be abolished. They are simply saying that the Senate needs more information on the subject before taking any action. “We don’t have enough information,” said Sen. John Velis (D-Westfi eld), the sponsor of the study amendment. “We need to do a deep-dive." “We need to hear from stakeholders," continued Velis. "Our job is not to watch CNN or Fox News to get informed; it’s our job to vote in the best interest of constituents.” Opponents of the study said the limits the bill places on qualifi ed immunity are reasonable and fair and are a compromise between doing nothing and abolishing qualifi ed immunity outright. Critics say that qualifi ed immunity has shielded violent police offi cers from being personally responsible for their actions. Supporters of it say that limiting qualifi ed immunity puts police offi cers at risk of frivolous lawsuits. Carol Rose of the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts said setting some limits on qualified immunity is a start. “In order to make any laws about excessive use of force meaningful, it is absolutely essential to reform qualifi ed immunity,” said Rose. “While the ACLU and many of our allies still wish to see qualifi ed immunity eliminated, we commend the Senate for taking this critical action and urge the House to do the same. The Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association is opposed to the limits placed on qualifi ed immunity. “To be clear, qualifi ed immunity is a bedrock protection extended to all public employees,” tweeted the BPPA. “Not just police offi - cers. It does not protect bad cops. In fact, it only protects police offi cers who act reasonably and within the rules and regulations of their respective departments.” (A “Yes” vote is for the study.

Taxpayers who are recent immigrants often are the most vulnerable and should ignore these threats and not engage the scammers. Unscrupulous return preparers: Selecting the right return preparer is important. The preparer is entrusted with a taxpayer’s sensitive personal data. Most tax professionals provide honest, high-quality service, but dishonest preparers pop up every filing season – committing fraud, harming innocent taxpayers or talking taxpayers into doing illegal things they regret later. Taxpayers should avoid so-called “ghost” preparers who expose their clients to potentially serious filing mistakes as well as possible tax fraud and risk of losing their refunds. With many tax professionals impacted by COVID-19 and their offices potentially closed, taxpayers should take particular care in selecting a credible tax preparer. Ghost preparers don’t sign the tax returns they prepare. They might print the tax return and tell the taxpayer to sign and mail it to the IRS. For e-filed returns, the ghost preparer will prepare but not digitally sign as the paid preparer. By law, anyone who is paid to prepare or assists in preparing federal tax returns must have a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). Paid preparers must sign and include their PTIN on returns. Unscrupulous preparers might also target those without a filing requirement and might or might not be due a refund. They promise inflated refunds by claiming fake tax credits, including education credits and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Taxpayers should avoid preparers who ask them to sign a blank return, promise a big refund before looking at the taxpayer’s records or charge fees based on a percentage of the refund. Taxpayers are ultimately responsible for the accuracy of their tax return, regardless of who prepares it. Taxpayers can go to a special page on IRS.gov for tips on choosing a preparer. Offer in Compromise (OIC) Mills: Taxpayers need to be wary of tax debt resolution companies that are misleading and exaggerate chances to settle tax debts for “pennies on the dollar” through an OIC. These offers are available for taxpayers who meet very specific criteria under law to qualify for reducing their tax bill. But unscrupulous companies oversell the program to unqualified candidates so they can collect a hefty fee from taxpayers already struggling with debt. These scams are commonly called OIC “mills,” which cast a wide net for taxpayers, charge them pricey fees and churn out applications for a program they’re unlikely to qualify for. Although the OIC program helps thousands of taxpayers each year reduce their tax debt, not everyone qualifies for an OIC. In Fiscal Year 2019, there were 54,000 OICs submitted to the IRS. The agency accepted 18,000 of them. Individual taxpayers can use the free online Offer in Compromise Pre-Qualifier tool to see if they qualify. The simple tool allows taxpayers to confirm eligibility and provides an estimated offer amount. Taxpayers can apply for an OIC without third-party representation, but the IRS reminds taxpayers that if they need help, they should be cautious about whom they hire. Fake payments with repayment demands: Criminals are always finding new ways to trick taxpayers into believing their scam, including putting a bogus refund into the taxpayer’s actual bank account. Here’s how the scam works: A con artist steals or obtains a taxpayer’s personal data, including Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) and bank account information. The scammer files a bogus tax return and has the refund deposited into the taxpayer’s checkOBITUARIES Arthur R. Rivers A longtime resident of Malden passed away on Sunday, July 19, with his loving family by his side. Arthur was born in Everett in 1930. Like many of his day, he left school early to begin working and help support the family. In I952 he joined the U.S. Army and served during the Korean War. After his honorable discharge he returned to Everett. He married his sweetheart in 1963, and the two settled down in Malden to raise their family. Arthur worked as a welder, first at Ideal Can Co. and then at Asia America. He worked as a welder until his retirement in 1995. In years past, Arthur enjoyed playing golf, especially with his father inlaw. Arthur also enjoyed taking cruises around the world with his wife, and he enjoyed settling down and watching Turner Classic Movies Channel. He is survived by his children, Linda Rivers of Malden, Edward Hodgin of Malden, David Hodgin of TX, William Hodgin of Beverly, Stephen Hodgin of VT, Walter Hodgin of Billerica, and Ethel Murphy of NY, his nieces, Kelly Orne of North Reading and Patrice Orne of Malden, whom he helped raise, as well as 7 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Arthur was preceded in death by his siblings, Donald, Wallace, Charles, Robert, Kenneth, Dorothy, Marilyn, and Peter. Barbara E. McKinlay O f Wellesley, formerly of Melrose, died Sunday, July 19, 2020 at Waterstone at Wellesley. She was 99 years old and a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Born in Everett on May 31, 1921 to Thomas and Ida Flaherty and sister to Chester Flaherty, Marie Jackson and Paul Flaherty, who all predeceased her. She was a 1939 graduate of Everett High School and a 1943 graduate of Salem State in Elementary Education. She also received a Master’s in education. She was a resident of Melrose from 1952 to 2008 and lived the last twelve years in Wellesley. She was an elementary school teacher in Everett, Wakefield and Melrose, and loved her kindergartners at Roosevelt Elementary School. She enjoyed reading and playing bridge, but most of all, she loved spending time with her family and friends. She was the devoted wife of James T. McKinlay, Jr., who died in 2010. They shared 65 years of marriage. She was the loving mother of Jim McKinlay of Revere, Tom McKinlay of Plymouth, John McKinlay and his wife Jane of Lynn, ing or savings account. Once the direct deposit hits the taxpayer’s bank account, the fraudster, posing as an IRS employee, places a call to the taxpayer. The taxpayer is told that there’s been an error and that the IRS needs the money returned immediately or penalties and interest will result. The taxpayer is told to buy specific gift cards for the amount of the refund. The IRS will never demand payment by a specific method. There are many payment options available to taxpayers, and there’s also a process through which taxpayers have the right to question the amount of tax the IRS says they owe. Anytime a taxpayer receives an unexpected refund and a call from the IRS out of the blue demanding a refund repayment, the taxpayer should reach out to his or her banking institution and the IRS. Payroll and HR scams: Tax professionals, employers and taxpayers need to be on guard against phishing designed to steal Form W-2s and other tax information. These scams are called Business E-mail Compromise (BEC) or Business E-mail Spoofing (BES). This is particularly true with many businesses closed and their employees working from home due to COVID-19. Currently, two of the most common types of these scams are the gift card scam and the direct deposit scam. In the gift card scam, a compromised e-mail account is often used to send a request to purchase gift cards in various denominations. In the direct deposit scheme, the fraudster might have access to the victim’s e-mail account (also known as an E-mail Account Compromise [EAC]). The fraudster might also impersonate the potential victim to have the organization change the employee’s direct deposit information to reroute their deposit to an account the fraudster controls. BEC/BES scams have used a variety of ploys to include requests for wire transfers, payment of fake invoices as well as others. In recent years, the IRS has observed variations of these scams where fake IRS documents are used in to lend legitimacy to the bogus request. For example, a fraudster might attempt a fake invoice scheme and use what appears to be a legitimate IRS document to help convince the victim. The Direct Deposit and other BEC/BES variations should be forwarded to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), where a complaint can be filed.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, July 24, 2020 Page 19 BEACON | FROM PAGE 17 study). Sen. Sal DiDomenico No BAN ALL CHOKEHOLDS (S. 2800) Senate 16-23, rejected an amendment that would completely ban police offi cers from using a chokehold under any circumstances. The amendment would replace an existing section of the bill that was a compromise reached by the working group that helped draft the measure. That compromise section allows chokeholds as long as they are not performed “with the intent of or with the result of causing unconsciousness or death.” The measure defi nes chokehold as “the use of a lateral vascular neck restraint, carotid restraint or other action that involves the placement of any part of law enforcement offi - cer’s body on or around a person’s neck in a manner that limits the person’s breathing or blood fl ow with the intent of or with the result of causing unconsciousness or death.” “The … bill as it exists now contains a loophole,” said Sen. Jim Welch (D-West Springfield), the sponsor of the amendment. “It would allow police offi cers to continue to use chokeholds on people if they claim their intent was to do anything other than cut off the individual’s air supply or blood fl ow and they don't render the person unconscious or dead. This amendment would truly ban the use of chokeholds by law enforcement, an action necessary to guarantee all members of our community are protected against these dangerous and often deadly tactics.” Amendment opponents said the amendment goes too far and deviates from the chokehold compromise the working group achieved. The compromise prohibits chokeholds except for ones that are not performed with the intent of or with the result of causing unconsciousness or death. “This amendment would have created an overbroad defi nition of chokehold,” said Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont), a leading proponent of the bill “In the course of a pitched struggle, it is entirely possible that an offi cer would have to put their arm around someone’s neck. Let’s stick with the balance [compromise] we got and let’s vote against this amendment.” (A “Yes” vote is for a complete ban on chokeholds. A “No” vote is against a complete ban.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes ALLOW CHOKEHOLDS (S. 2800) Senate 3-36, rejected an amendment that would allow the use of a chokehold if the offi cer reasonably believes that his or her life is “in immediate jeopardy of imminent death or serious bodily injury." “Police officers encounter dangerous situations daily,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Dean Tran (R-Leominster). “They should be allowed to use all necessary tools available to protect themselves and when their lives are at risk especially if the perpetrators are bigger and stronger. Not all police offi cers are 6 feet 2 inches and weigh 200 pounds. Many are smaller. Now when a female officer, who is let’s say 5 feet 2 inches and weighs 115 pounds, goes up against someone who is twice her stature, we want her and all of the offi cers to have all the necessary tools available to them for self-defense including the use of chokeholds.” “This amendment would have weakened the ban to a greater extent than necessary to assure offi cer safety,” said Sen. Brownsberger. “Let's stick with the balance we got and let’s vote against this amendment.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico No $16.9 BILLION IN TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS (S. 2813) Senate 36-4, approved an estimated $16.9 billion bond bill authorizing spending on transportation projects and infrastructure. Provisions include $5.6 billion for federal highway system projects, $2 billion for the design, construction and repair of non-federally aided roadway and bridge projects and another $1.25 billion for construction, resurfacing and improvements of bridges and approaches. The package is a bond bill under which the funding would be borrowed by the state through the sale of bonds. A controversial section of the bill allows cities and towns and regions to raise local taxes to fund transportation projects outside of Proposition 2½, which limits property tax increases in cities and towns. The package also includes earmarks for hundreds of millions of dollars for hundreds of projects in legislators’ districts across the state—many of which will never be funded. The Baker administration is required to adhere to the state’s annual bond borrowing cap and ultimately decides which projects are aff ordable and actually get funded. Sometimes a legislator will immediately tout the inclusion of local projects in these types of bond bills, especially in an election year to show he or she “brought home the bacon.” But be warned that none of the projects in this package have yet been funded and most will end up never being funded because of the borrowing cap and the power of the governor’s offi ce to pick which projects actually get the green light. The House has already approved an $18 billion transportation package which includes an estimated $522 million to $600 million tax hike to fund improvements to the state’s transportation system. None of the hikes are included in the Senate version. Hikes include a 5 cents-pergallon increase in the motor vehicle gas excise tax; a 9 cents-per-gallon increase in the diesel fuel tax; an increase in the aviation fuel tax from 5 percent of the average price per gallon to 7.5 percent of the average price per gallon; elimination of the sales tax exemption on vehicle purchases for traditional rental car companies; replacing the current fl at $456 minimum corporate excise tax with a nine-tiered sliding scale ranging from $456 if the corporation’s total sales are less than $1 million to $150,000 if the corporation’s sales total $1 billion; and increasing the 20 cents-per-trip fl at fee to $1.20 for each nonshared Uber and Lyft ride and $2.20 for every luxury ride. The bill includes language aimed at preventing Uber and Lyft from passing those hikes directly onto riders. Supporters said the bill funds important transportation projects across the state and unlike the House version, does not raise taxes. “In an increasingly hectic end to the fiscal year, I am pleased the Senate was able to pass this important piece of legislation to address many of the Commonwealth’s infrastructure needs," said Sen. Michael Moore (D-Milbury). “The transportation bond bill is a comprehensive collection of many necessary improvements to our transportation systems from road and bridges to various modes of public transportation. During these increasingly diffi cult fi nancial times it is critical that we continue to make investments in projects such as roads, bridges, sidewalks, and other various restoration projects throughout the commonwealth.” Despite several attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call, Sen. Joe Boncore (D-Winthrop), the Senate chair of the Transportation Committee, did not respond to requests to comment on the bill. “Section 5 in the bill sets up regional taxation districts where they could change the sales or property taxes by region,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton). “This is a harmful concept for local businesses and residents. If their region decides to increase sales taxes, potential customers may look beyond these districts to shop for products. We should be working to give relief to our local small businesses during these challenging economic and public health times, not creating an extra barrier to success.” A House-Senate conference committee will attempt to hammer out a compromise version. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes ALLOW CITIES AND TOWNS TO RAISE TAXES FOR TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS (S. 2813) Senate 8-31, rejected a motion to strike from the bill a section that allows cities and towns and regions to raise local taxes to fund transportation projects outside of Proposition 2½, which limits property tax increases in cities and towns. “Legislating by local tax ballot initiatives hampers our ability to serve our communities in a uniform, progressive, equitable way,” said Sen. Diane DiZoglio (D-Methuen), who led the charge to delete the section. “Some of the tax options put forward in this regional tax increase proposal, including the sales tax and property tax components, have nothing to do with transportation but are extremely regressive and would damage our Main Streets. Now, in the middle of a global pandemic, it is astounding to me that we think this is the time to be adding more of a fi nancial burden to our local mom and pop shops.” “It’s clear that more and better public transit is needed across the state, and it is important to give local communities and regions the ability to raise funds when they identify particular needs,” said Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton). “Improving access to business districts that are not currently accessible by public transit is good for workers, small businesses and the overall economy. We are giving communities this option if the voters choose to use it.” "The attacks on Proposition 2½ under any guise are relentless, always intent on chipping away at city and town taxpayers’ protection," said Chip Ford, Executive Director of Citizens for Limited Taxation, which created the law overwhelmingly approved by voters in 1980.

Sal DiDomenico No INSTALL CAMERAS ON SCHOOL BUSES (S. 2813) Senate 14-25, rejected an amendment that would allow any city or town to install and operate live digital video school bus violation detection monitoring systems to enforce violations against the owner of a motor vehicle whose vehicle failed to stop for a school bus when required to do so by law. School buses with the monitoring system installed would post signage indicating the use of that system. “At least 22 states have enacted stop-arm laws to catch and punish motorists who pass stopped school buses by allowing local jurisdictions to install cameras on the outside of the bus to record illegal passings,” said the amendment’s sponsor Sen. Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen). “This is a commonsense mechanism that would help to increase driver awareness, prevent injuries and save lives, and the use of cameras for this specific purpose has widespread voter support in Massachusetts.” Opponents said that the transportation bill is focused on transportation projects and not general road safety. They said there are some safety provisions in the bill, but those provisions are focused on construction zones which make them related to the transportation bill. They noted the school bus camera idea was already considered by the Senate this past year and was rejected. (A “Yes” vote is for putting cameras on the buses. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico 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.
