BOSTON (CBS) – They’re scheduled to debate and vote on the legislature’s $500 million tax-hike bill Monday in the House, and if I were you I’d pay close attention to what happens next.
Last week, after the legislature threw out Gov. Patrick’s $1.9 billion tax-and-spending bill and replaced it with their own far more modest version, the governor was furious, and promised to veto the House-Senate plan. And he might very well rustle up enough votes in the legislature to sustain his veto, thus leaving us without any plan to deal with the dire financial straits of the MBTA and other pressing infrastructure needs.
