House Minority Leader’s Statement on Speaker Robert DeLeo’s Legislative Agenda

House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) issued the following statement today after Speaker DeLeo’s address to the House of Representatives outlining his agenda for the legislative session:

"I welcome Speaker DeLeo’s agenda for the upcoming legislative session and applaud his vow not to increase taxes or fees on the residents of the Commonwealth.

The upcoming session will undoubtedly be full of tough decisions, some of which the Speaker and I may not agree upon. However, we should be steadfast in our commitment to remaining constructively engaged on issues and ideas that will continue to move Massachusetts forward despite our partisan differences."
