Dear Friends,

I want to send a quick note about the busy week ahead. Session is in full swing, and there are a lot of hearings this week. I'll be holding my second "office hour" on the floor of the House on Tuesday; come by and say "hi" before session on Tuesday. I would love to welcome you to the floor of the House of Representatives. And, what a great day to come to the State House! You might stay for the House Finance budget briefing or the Senate hearings on the Doula bill and the Parentage Act.  Hopefully these two important bills will pass this year. These hearings will start sometime after 4:30. 

If you want more details about other bills set for hearing, you can check here:  Hearings must be posted 48 hours ahead of time, on the "Committee Hearings" page. You can also look at bills as they are posted here, on the legislation tab - click on "daily introductions." If you see bills and have questions, please ask. I love talking about legislation!

I hope to see you at the State House, in the neighborhood, or on social media! Meanwhile, follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram for more frequent updates, or write to me at We have a lot of work to do, and I'm glad to be doing it together with all of you!
