ANSWERS Sen. Jason Lewis No ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL PROHIBIT DISCRIMINATION AGAINST A PERSON WITH A NATURAL HAIRSTYLE (H 5028) –The Senate gave fi nal approval to and sent to Gov. Bakera bill that would prohibit any person or entity including educational institutions workplaces and public spaces from implementing any policy that would explicitly target someone who wears their natural hairstyle. The measure defines natural hairstyle as hair texture, hair type and protective hairstyles including braids, locks, twists and other formations. Supporters said this racial discrimination occurs far too often and argued it is time to put a stop to it. They are hopeful the governor will sign the bill which has been worked on for years and has fi nally made it to the governor’s desk. Sponsor Rep. Mike Day (D-Stoneham) said the measure would ensure that students and workers won’t be forced to cut their hair in order to participate in activities or go to work. GOLD STAR FAMILIES – The Senate approved an amendment fi led by Veterans and Federal Aff airs Committeechair Sen. John Velis (D-Westfield) that would repeal a current law that restricts Gold Star spouses from receiving their annuity if they remarry. The amendment would also increase from $2,000 to $3,000 the annual annuity payment that Gold Star parents and spouses receive annually from the state. “Not only has the annuity payment level not increased in 16 years, but our commonwealth still has laws on the books that cruelly prohibit spouses from receiving the annuity if they remarry,” said Velis. “Think about how archaic and unfair that is, that we would penalize husband and wives, who have lost their loved ones and sacrifi ced so much themselves, from trying to continue on with their lives.” MORATORIUM ON PRISON CONSTRUCTION – The fate of the amendment that imposes a five-year moratorium on any prison or jail construction - LEGAL NOTICE - COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Middlesex Division Docket No. MI22P3745EA Estate of: RONALD E.

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 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 July 1822, the House met for a total of 15 hours and four minutes and the Senate met for a total of 16 hours and 49 minutes. Mon.
