$1.3 Billion GreenWorks Bond Bill House #85

Vote Description

This was a vote on H.3897, a one billion dollar bond bill dedicated to spending on projects dealing with climate change while exempting this bond from our bond cap debt limit. A bond bill borrows money with interest and tacks on to our state's debt. Because of this, bonding agencies consider our debt when giving bond rating. Our score was recently downgraded by S&P and we are on a trajectory to be downgraded by more agencies if this piling on of debt continues. Currently Massachusetts holds some of the highest debt in the country.

Mass Fiscal Explanation

Mass Fiscal does not support this bill because it recklessly spends and adds to our out-of-control state debt. Link to bill: https://malegislature.gov/Bills/191/H3997
