Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020 MassFiscal weighs in on governor’s $45.5B budget proposal T he Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance recently responded to Governor Charlie Baker’s $45.5 billion revised state budget, which calls for more spending than his preCOVID budget released in January. Despite the increase in spending, the new budget anticipates less tax money being collected by the state than in January. To cover this gap, the Governor’s budget spends approximately $1.35 billion of the state’s $3.5 billion “rainy-day” fund, leaving the balance at around $2.2 billion at the end of the year. “Governor Baker was right to propose the state draw on the ‘rainy day’ fund to pay for state spending during a once in a generation crisis. However, without reducing state spending, the state continues heading in the wrong direction. Taxpayers would be more willing to see their savings be spent if it included a reduction in state government spending,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. Massachusetts remains operating under pandemic-related executive orders, originally promulgated in March, that have shut down or limited economic activity around the state. After setting records for highest unemployment in the country over the summer, the Commonwealth continues to be among the states with the highest unemployment and its economy remains severely distressed. Despite this, the Baker administration proposed raising taxes on popular services like Uber and Lyft and further squeeze struggling businesses by implementing an immediate collection of the sales tax and increased the level of state government spending. “In this pandemic, few industries have been hit harder than ride sharing services and retail businesses. To then decide that their pain can be best addressed with a tax increase, and accelerated tax collections, shows a tone JOIN OUR TEAM “We seek a quality box truck driver and mover for vending equipment.
