@MassLtGov @MassHHS @MassEEA @MBTA @MassDOT To build on these improvements, we filed an $18 billion transportation bond bill last year, the largest ever.
It includes $11 billion for road + bridge improvements and $7 billion for transit.
Our 2021 budget will include a $135 million boost in @MBTA operating funds.
@MassLtGov @MassHHS @MassEEA Since 2015, we’ve been addressing transportation challenges: Years of under investment in the T and skyrocketing workforce growth.
At the @MBTA, our administration is the first ever to invest more than $1 billion per year and fund a 5-year, $8 billion upgrade program.
Our towns shouldn’t be left with the costs of cleaning up PFAS. We must protect public health while going after those who are responsible for the pollution.
My legislation provides resources to towns like Merrimack to make the necessary upgrades to their water infrastructure. https://t.co/jaOYGHTgNG
Republicans want to cut mass public transit allocations from the Highway Trust Fund as they only serve a small local population rather than the larger infrastructure. They want to put the funding responsibility back in the hands of cities and relevant programs. They oppose an increase in raising the federal gas tax. source
Feel that government funded mass transport helps improve urban economies by giving low- and middle-class wage earners an alternative to get to work, school, and other essential locations. They also support an increase in the federal gas tax. source
