State House Update - August 2018

by Press Release
August 12, 2018


 

Dear Neighbor,

Summer is a wonderful and active time here in the Commonwealth, and I hope you are taking advantage of the many activities and events our communities have to offer!Here in the Legislature, we just wrapped up our two-year legislative session at the end of July. As your state representative, I was proud to vote for a wide range of legislation that was passed into law this session that worked to invest in our communities, protect our residents, and ensure that everyone has the opportunities they need to succeed. As your representative, I filed 39 bills this session on subjects ranging from environmental protection to road safety.

In July, the Legislature also approved a final FY19 state budget that included $41.88 billion in funding, including the allocation of federal funding, for the programs and services that keep our Commonwealth running and support our most vulnerable residents. This budget includes $1.1 billion in local aid, as well as $4.9 billion in Chapter 70 education funding for local schools. 

In this newsletter you will find more detail about major legislation we worked to pass this session, as well as a breakdown of the FY19 budget. For more information, please visit the legislature's website or my own website, and as always, I welcome and appreciate your feedback on any issue that is important to you.
Enjoy a safe and happy summer!

Warmly,

Rep. Carolyn Dykema Signature
