PHENOM will have a major presence at the legislative Revenue Committee’s hearing on the progressive revenue bill (An Act to Invest in Our Communities) tomorrow (Thursday). Please join us and folks from the MTA and many other unions and community organizations as we advocate for fair tax reform. The bill would raise over $1.3 billion with almost all of it coming from increased taxes on the wealthy. [See more information here.]
GARDNER AUDITORIUM, STATE HOUSE, 10 A.M. TO 2 P.M. MAY 5
We will be back at the State House next Wednesday, May 11 for the Higher Education Committee’s hearing on financial aid bills. Numerous bills will be considered, including one filed by Rep. Sean Garballey on PHENOM’s behalf: the Finish Line Grant. This would make the last year of college free for those needing financial aid. [See here for the text of the bill.] Please join us! And let us know if you would like to testify.
