44 Representatives and 16 Senators have signed on to co-sponsor the bill! There are still a number of legislators who we know are supportive who need to indicate their support.
You can get an updated list of Representatives and Senators that support the bill by inquiring via the MASS-CARE contact page.
If your legislator is not on the list, please email them or given them a call and urge them to support the Massachusetts Health Care Trust. The Representatives can sign on as supporters by calling Representative Frank Hynes (D- Marshfield) office. The Senators can sign on as supporters by calling Steven Tolman's (D- Brighton) office.
