Spending New Years the way it should be spent with my love. @j_rubbadub #waysandmeans #OldCrowHB #livemusic #happy2017

Today, on my birthday, I was given my first opportunity as floor leader on a bill that will increase Education Trust Fund dollars. #HB300 #WaysAndMeans #MDdemsatwork

So proud to serve with an American patriot , Sam Johnson. He was a POW in Vietnam and has been serving in Congress for over 25 years. He is a colleague of mine on the Ways and Means committee and a friend. Today we named the social security committee room the Sam Johnson room in the Rayburn HOB. #patriot #waysandmeans

Ways and means hearing on sugar sweetened beverage tax proposed by House Bill 5636. My colleagues and I will work with our government agencies and stakeholders to ensure that any anti-poor or unreasonable provisions will not be included. Many countries have adopted similar measures as a health measure to improve overall well being of their citizens. Right now proposal is to place a tax of P10 per liter of soda or sweetened beverage. Many see this as too high relative to the actual price which could range from P 20-30/liter. Some beverages currently included are 3-in 1 coffee, some milk products, powdered drinks, which is why I suggested to DOf to study a content based tax which would lead to healthier beverages being produced. Right now, coffee and some milk is treated the same as soda which probably should not be the case #toughdecisions #healthypeople #waysandmeans #trainbill

While in residence @kalaartinstitute Christine Wong Yap and I collaborated on this 13-color woodblock and polymer plate letterpress print that took shape in the form of an editioned tearaway activity sheet with instructions. Inspired by the well-known cootie catcher game we all played as kids, Color | Cootie | Feeling | Catcher encourages self-reflection and exchange through the selection of color and introspection. This was one of several projects @cwongyap produced for her impressively engaging Ways & Means installation for the Kala Fellows exhibition up now through October 15th! #colorcootiefeelingcatcher #waysandmeans #printcollaboration #woodblockprint #thirteencolors

Gov. Charlie Baker called it: The state’s shortfall for last fiscal year, which ended June 30, came in at about $431 million, right around where the administration had projected, despite fears expressed by some that the shortfall might be considerably larger, as reported by SHNS’s Colin Young at the Greenfield Recorder. Baker has expressed confidence that the administration, through ‘nipping and tucking,’ can handle the shortfall. 💸💸💸

Bottomless mimosas by the beach! 🌊 #timetorelax #beachlife #huntingtonbeach #waysandmeans

The dust-up between state Rep. Russell E. Holmes, who was ousted from his House leadership post earlier this week, and House Speaker Robert DeLeo, showed no signs of abating yesterday, with Holmes comparing DeLeo to President Donald Trump, as reported by Kathleen McKiernan and Matt Stout at the Herald. Meanwhile, Sir Scot Leigh at the Kingdom of the Globe detects growing insecurity by King Robert the Eternal of Beacon Hill, surrounded as he is by lesser subjects, including Prince Stanley of the Righteous Amherst Realm. ⚔️

Thursday morning on Beacon Hill: Final pot bill expected on Gov. Baker’s desk today, the scramble for former Haverhill Rep. Brian Dempsey's seat begins, and, sadly, U.S. Sen. John McCain is diagnosed with the same brain cancer that took Ted Kennedy's life.

Morning, #mapoli. There's a pot vote today amid questions — lots of questions.
____________________
Lawmakers are poised to tackle the compromise marijuana-regulations package as early as today, reports SHNS. But there are lots of questions and confusion swirling around the package, such as Treasurer Deb Goldberg saying she has “no idea” if retail pot shops can open as scheduled a year from now. Then there’s a clause in the legislation calling for creation of a new Cannabis Advisory Board by Aug. 1 -- a somewhat ambitious timetable. Of course, there’s also the issue whether the bill’s provisions even pass constitutional muster. But Senate President Stan Rosenberg told WGBH yesterday that legislative lawyers gave the package a legal thumbs up. 👍

In a surprise move, House Speaker Robert DeLeo has announced that Rep. Jeffrey Sanchez, a Jamaica Plain Democrat who currently heads the Health Care Financing Committee, will replace outgoing Rep. Brian Dempsey as chair of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, reports SHNS’s Michael Norton at CommonWealth magazine. Sanchez describes himself as a “practical progressive” and will instantly become one of the most influential players on Beacon Hill, reports Joshua Miller at the Boston Globe. Sanchez’s name was not on the short lists of speculated successors before yesterday’s announcement, reports the Herald’s Jack Encarnacao. Even Sanchez was surprised by his selection, Encarnacao writes. (📷: Antonio Caban/SHNS/2016)
