Mass Fiscal Explanation

Mass Fiscal supports a yes vote because we believe this amendment increases transparency. Members of the Senate may be tempted to pass through controversial legislation in the darkness of night while constituents sleep. This amendment would at least require unanimous consent to meet past midnight.
