House Minority Leader’s Statement on Attempt to Repeal Suffolk County Holidays

BOSTON—House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. issued the following statement today in response to the attempt to repeal the Suffolk County holidays:

I am discouraged by the House’s unwillingness to adopt a bi-partisan amendment seeking to repeal the paid holidays for state and municipal personnel in Suffolk County. The potential savings surrounding this long overdue reform would have been a cost savings initiative benefitting the taxpayers of the Commonwealth. Despite this setback, we will continue to push good public policy and transparency.
