THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 5, 2019 Page 19 BEACON | FROM PAGE 18 cap in the Bay State. These families are barred from receiving an additional $100 a month to help support that child. They said there are no facts to back up the charge that families are having more children in order to get the additional $100. “I have heard countless personal accounts from many families who are hurt by this cap on kids,” said Sen. Sal DiDomenico (DEverett), the Senate sponsor of the proposal. “Because their benefi ts are so low, parents with ‘capped’ children struggle to meet their families’ basic needs. For instance, they often can’t pay for enough diapers to keep their child clean, dry and healthy. And they are forced to make painful choices about which necessities they can aff ord. We know that it’s time to take action to repeal this outdated, ineff ective and unjust policy, and show that we value all children equally, regardless of the circumstances of their birth.” “I think it’s unfair to ask the constituents back home to pay for a benefi t for others that they don’t get themselves,” said Sen. Don Humason (R-Westfi eld), the only opponent of the bill. He said the Legislature should have a big heart and take care of people but noted he also needs to listen to his constituents who tell him they are having a diffi - cult time making ends meet and are limiting the number of children they have. He said his constituents tell him they are not eligible for any welfare benefi ts but are forced to pay these benefi ts for others who decide to have more children. (A “Yes” vote is for removing the cap. A “No” vote is against removing it). Sen. Jason Lewis Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION?

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 fi led. 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 March 2529, the House met for a total of eight hours and 54 minutes while the Senate met for a total of four hours and 33 minutes.
