Today we are taking up veto overrides at the State House. I'm pleased to report that we have restored funding in FY18 budget for several local priorities of mine: $20,000 for Wampatuck Pond testing in Hanson, $25,000 for the Pembroke Soup Connection, Inc., $50,000 for technology improvements at Pembroke Public Schools, $50,000 for Duxbury Senior Center improvements, $25,000 for Pembroke public safety, $100,000 for mental health referral service in South Shore that benefits Duxbury and Pembroke, $50,000 for Central Plymouth Water District which benefits Hanson and Pembroke, $100,000 for arbovirus, EEE and West Nile treatments in Plymouth County and $100,000 for Herring Run Park in Pembroke. These overrides were all passed in the House by a 2/3 vote, most on a bipartisan basis. Thank you to my House colleagues for supporting them. The next step is to take them up in the Senate which I expect will happen soon.
