Legislative Override Vote for BHO Funding Postponed Until Next Weekend, 7/30-31.

With hundreds of Governor issued vetoes to consider for overrides we were not surprised that the Mass Legislature did not get to the BHO override.  Constitutional Offices, agencies, human services, etc. accounts were taken up first, but due to time constraints, the House/Senate simply could not take them all up during Saturday’s session.  They plan to do so this coming weekend. Sunday is the last day of full formal sessions where recorded roll calls can take place.

If you have not already done so, we are asking that you call House Speaker DeLeo (617-722-2500) and Senate President Rosenberg (617-722-1500) and your legislators and ask them to vote to override the Governor’s veto of the $100,000 for Blue Hill Observatory in the FY2017 Budget, account # 2810-0100. A list of all legislators can be found on this link.
