The Massachusetts House of Representatives’ budget has been released and the House is likely to begin debate on amendments and the budget itself next week (week of 4/25/22). You can find the House’s budget here and all of the amendments here.
GOAL is especially interested in five amendments:
Amendment 12: Use of Crossbows for Hunting filed by Rep. Smitty Pignatelli
Amendment 245: Archery Hunting Setbacks filed by Rep. David Vieira
Amendment 545: Sunday Archery Hunting filed by Rep. Bill Straus
Amendment 805: Mental Health and Suicide Management Comission filed by Rep. Lenny Mirra
Amendment 1319: Expansion of Wildlands Conservation Stamps filed by Rep. David Muradian
Please consider reaching out to your Representative to advocate that these amendments be added to the final version of the House’s Budget. This will go a long way toward making sure they end up as part of the final budget signed by the Governor.
