Statement Beacon Hill Democrats are taking advantage of informal legislative session to pass bloated $3.7 billion spending bill Dems cite "financial uncertainties" in eliminating previously negotiated tax cuts and rebates, yet show zero hesitancy when it comes to blow-out spending Nov. 3, 2022 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Evan Lips, communications director 617-523-5005 ext. 245 WOBURN -- Informal legislative sessions, attended by at most only a handful of lawmakers, feature no roll call votes and are used to address various matters "which are of a non-controversial nature," according to the legislative process in Massachusetts. Yet this morning Democratic leadership will advance a bloated $3.7 billion spending package without recording a single yes-or-no vote.

The package also eliminates tax cuts and rebates that had previously been negotiated, according to the State House News Service. Democratic leadership cited "financial uncertainties in the year ahead." Massachusetts Republican Party Chairman Jim Lyons on Thursday called the Democrats' reasoning "a total contradiction." "They removed the tax cuts from the original package, and the reason they did that, according to their own words, is that they're uncertain about economic conditions moving forward," Lyons said. "Yet somehow that isn't stopping them from spending a whopping $3.7 billion of the taxpayers' money. "This is exactly why Massachusetts taxpayers are absolutely fed up with the status quo on Beacon Hill. The Democrats are using an informal session to pass this progressive grab bag stuffed with handouts because they're afraid of having to go on the record and actually vote for it." Lyons added that he will be calling on lawmakers to explain how a $3.7 billion spending bill is "non-controversial in nature," referencing rules governing informal sessions. "It's completely wrong and it's a slap in the face to the voters, delivered by Democrats with the back of the hand just days before the Election."
