Governor Patrick Opposes Short Term Transportation Fix, Values Generational Responsibility
BOSTON – Thursday, April 4, 2013 – Governor Deval Patrick today responded to the Joint House and Senate Leadership transportation proposal, making clear that the proposal does not meet the immediate or long-term needs of the Commonwealth. The Governor discussed how together, with the Legislature, the Administration has built a track record of reforms and policies that will leave a stronger Commonwealth for future generations, and that he cannot support this bill, as is, which puts off necessary investments in our transportation and education system.
