There were no roll calls in the Senate last week. $10.9 BILLION TRANSPORTATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE (H 4897) House 155-0, approved and sent to the Senate a nearly $11 billion transportation and infrastructure package that includes $400 million for the MBTA to address safety problems identified by the Federal Transit Administration’s Safety Management Inspection and $250 million for initial steps toward a western Massachusetts rail extension. Other provisions include $2.8 billion for projects on the interstate and non-interstate federal highway system; $82 million for rail improvements; $1 billion for transit system modernization and rail improvements; $114 million for the Airport Improvement Program; and $200 million to create an extensive electric vehicle charging infrastructure, fund programs that promote e-bikes, public transportation and carsharing; replace high-emissions vehicles; and acquire electric school buses. House members filed more than 300 amendments, many dealing with local projects in legislators’ home districts, but there was little debate and not a single roll call vote on any individual amendment. Instead, members made their cases behind closed doors to the leadership and all the amendments that were given the green light by the leadership ended up in one gigantic consolidated mega amendwealth’s transportation infrastructure is adequately funded is a top priority for the House, which is why I’m proud of the legislation passed today,” said House Speaker Ron Mariano (D-Quincy). “In addition to significant funding for roadway and bridge projects, this bill also recognizes the importance of providing further support for the MBTA in their ongoing effort to address safety concerns and for the ever-important East-West Rail project.” “This legislation sets the table for the next administration to take full advantage of the additional billions of dollars, both state and federal, for critical transportation projects throughout the state,” said Rep. Bill Straus (D- Mattapoisett), House chair of the Committee on Transportation. “The House has wisely used the bill as an opportunity to again demonstrate its commitment to roads, bridges and public transit.” (A “Yes” vote is for the package). Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL REACTION ON BEACON HILL TO THE U.S. SUPREME COURT RULING STRIKING DOWN ROE V WADEThere was swift reaction across the state to the Supreme Court’s ruling that the constitution does not confer the right to an abortion and that decisions about regulating abortion are now up to each of the 50 states. Gov. Charlie Baker said he was “deeply disappointed” with the decision and he quickly signed an executive order to protect access to reproductive health care services in the commonwealth. “This executive order will further preserve that right and protect reproductive health care providers who serve out of state residents,” said Baker. “In light of the SuREAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS BUYER1 NG, WAN T GAO, RUNZI CONNELL, NORMAN R LAZO, ESTEBAN A BASITH, ROBIUL M LAU, THANG C BUYER2 LI, XI SANTAWISOOK, PATCHARA FLORES-LAZO, SONIA M LIU, LU SELLER1 LI, PEI J CHEN, LI JU JSC HOLDINGS LLC PHAM, ROLAND JIA, YIFAN ROONEY PROPERTIES LLC SELLER2 YANG, XUE Q WU, KENT take place on Saturday, July 16, from 12-4 p.m. – Malden preme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v Wade, it is especially important to ensure that Massachusetts providers can continue to provide reproductive health care services without concern that the laws of other states may be used to interfere with those services or sanction them for providing services that are lawful in the commonwealth.” “We are grateful for all those who never stopped fighting for the lives of the unborn,” said Andrew Beckwith, the President of the Massachusetts Family Institute. “For decades, we were told this was a ‘settled issue’ in American law and culture, but that was a lie and the tide has turned. The legalization of abortion by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 was one of the most egregious cases of judicial activism this country has ever seen. It resulted in over sixty million dead American children and an unending contentious public debate. “This dangerous and chilling decision will have devastating consequences across the country, forcing people to travel hundreds, sometimes thousands, of miles for care or remain pregnant,” said Dr. Jennifer Childs-Rosha, President of Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts (PPLM). “Abortion is health care, and access to care should not be based on one’s zip code, income level or identity. This is a dark day for our country, but we’ve been preparing for this. In Massachusetts, abortion will remain legal and protected under state law – the Court’s decision does not change this, and PPLM is here for our patients today, and always.” Myrna Maloney Flynn, Massachusetts Citizens for Life’s president, said, "This is a moment that life advocates have worked tirelessly for throughout the past half-century. A grave and unjust abuse of judicial power has been corrected. The American people now have a voice, a united voice that, today, raises even louder on behalf of the voiceless.

That same evening at Spicy World (157 Pleasant St.), a Comedy Show featuring Malden’s very own Dave Russo alongside Medford’s Irish comedy tour headliner Mike “The Comedy Barbarian” McCarthy will take place. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. The final Summer Festival of 2022 will be on August 13 from 12-4 p.m. and will feature amazing feats of strength! ning, as we aim to bridge the great cultural chasm that Roe v. Wade created. We will not stop working to save the lives of innocent unborn human beings.” “The court’s ruling will have an immediate and devastating impact on people seeking abortion care in nearly half of the country, taking from them a right that has been central to their ability to plan their lives, families and careers,” said Carol Rose, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Massachusetts. “These burdens will disproportionately fall on people of color, those struggling to make ends meet, young people, rural residents, immigrants and LGBTQ+ communities. And make no mistake: anti-abortion politicians won’t stop here. Extremists have made it clear that they will use this ruling to press for a nationwide ban on abortion, as well as bans on birth control, gender-affirming care, and equal marriage, among other basic civil rights and liberties. The ACLU won’t back down until every person has the freedom and ability to make these most personal and life-changingdecisions for themselves and their families.” BAKER SIGNS ELECTION LAW BILL (S 2924) – Gov. Charlie Baker signed into law the bill making permanent the mail-in and early voting options used in Massachusetts in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. This version of the bill did not include the controversial section allowing sameday voter registration. The measure requires the secretary of state to send out mail-in ballot applications, with return postage guaranteed, to registered voters before each presidential primary, state primary and biennial state election. It also allows registered voters to request a mail-in ballot for all elections in a single calendar year.
