House Republicans to Hold Media Availability

Republican lawmakers will be holding a media availability Thursday to voice their disappointment with the House Majority as the Democratic-controlled Legislature once again demonstrates it is content with the status quo.

With a dark cloud hovering over Beacon Hill, and the public’s lack of trust in its elected officials, we believe it to be imperative that the culture of corruption come to a grinding halt. Far too many ethical improprieties have violated the Legislature’s standing and have jeopardized our ability to lead.

Tomorrow, we will be discussing the amendments we put forward in the rules debate and articulate to you and to the public why these rules changes are necessary to regain the public’s trust. Additionally, a letter being sent out to every member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives will be distributed to members of the press.

The press conference will be held tomorrow (Thursday) at 12:15 p.m. outside Room 124 on the first floor of the Statehouse.
