Governor Baker Vetoes $100,000 Earmark for B.H.O. Your Support is Needed.

For the second year in a row the Massachusetts Legislature has appropriated $100,000 for operational support for Blue Hill Observatory & Science Center and for the second year in a row the Governor has vetoed it. Once again, we are asking for your support.
On Wednesday, July 29th  the state legislature, that recognized the Observatory’s critical role in climate research and education with the $100,000 earmark, will review all items vetoed by Governor Baker. They have the authority, with a two-thirds vote, to restore the $100,000 earmark that is so critical for continuing our historic climate study and educational programming. But, this might not happen without your support.
Because of the shortness of time we are asking that you CALL Senate President Stanley Rosenburg (617-722-1500) and the House Speaker Robert DeLeo (617-722-2500) and ask them to schedule an override vote for the Governor’s veto of the $100K earmarked for Blue Hill Observatory in the FY2016 Budget, account # 2810-0100. In addition, we encourage our supporters to contact their legislators on Beacon Hill. A list of all legislators can be found on this link.
