Massachusetts Fair Share

We stand up for a Massachusetts where everyone gets a fair shot, does and pays their fair share, and plays by the same rules.

MA Delegation Digest 5/17 – 5/23

Sen. Elizabeth Warren

Sen. Ed Markey

Rep. Richard Neal (MA-1)

Rep. Jim McGovern (MA-2)

Rep. Niki Tsongas (MA-3)

  • Rep. Tsongas introduced a bill that would award the Congressional Gold Medal to members of the U.S. Air Force Escape and Evasion Society, a group of Air Force veterans who evaded capture in hostile territory during foreign wars with the help of local resistance members or patriotic nationals. The group includes U.S. veterans from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, as well as foreign nationals who directly aided them.

Rep. Joseph Kennedy (MA-4)

  • Rep. Kennedy delivered the commencement address at the University of Virginia Law School, and was awarded Ted Kennedy’s diploma in a surprise ceremony immediately after his speech. The diploma had been held by the school since 1959 after the late Senator skipped his graduation to help his brother John launch his presidential campaign and declined to give the school his forwarding information.

Rep. Katherine Clark (MA-5)

  • Rep. Clark introduced her first bill as a U.S. Representative, the “Infant and Toddler Care Improvement Act.” It would update the Block Grant program which assists states in creating early education and care assistance programs.

Rep. John Tierney (MA-6)

Rep. Stephen Lynch (MA-8)

  • Rep. Lynch recently met with the PM of Ukraine and other officials of the embattled acting government, and advised his constituents to pay close attention to events in Ukraine, saying, “this is about a new world order Putin is trying to create. I think the acquisitions and the domination is a very deliberate pattern of conflict.”

Rep. Bill Keating (MA-9)
