Printer-friendly versionSend by email

At the MMA’s Annual Business Meeting on Jan. 20, members will consider a resolution on the state-local fiscal partnership, one opposing a proposed sales tax ballot question, and one on partnering with the state and federal government to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
 
Each resolution was drafted by an MMA policy committee during the fall and approved by the MMA Board of Directors on Nov. 14.
 
The proposed resolutions are as follows:
 
Resolution Ensuring a Strong and Enduring Fiscal Partnership Between Cities and Towns and State Government in Fiscal 2019 and Beyond, proposed by the MMA Fiscal Policy Committee
 
Resolution in Opposition to the Ballot Question that Would Reduce the Use and Sales Tax Rate, proposed by the MMA Fiscal Policy Committee
 
Resolution Supporting a Local-State-Federal Partnership to Combat the Impact of Climate Change, proposed by the MMA Policy Committee on Energy and the Environment
 
The policy committees that drafted the resolutions are welcoming member comments through Dec. 29 so that committee members will be able to review any input before the Annual Business Meeting. Municipal officials may submit any comments to the MMA’s Legislative Division at 1 Winthrop Square, Boston, MA 02110 or vcalaban@mma.org.
