Representative Jones’ Statement On Proposed Economic Relief Rebates For Mass. Residents

House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) released the following statement in response to today’s announcement by House Speaker Ronald Mariano and Senate President Karen Spilka that the House and Senate will be providing economic relief rebates for individuals and families:

“I only learned of the proposal today after seeing details in the media. I appreciate this first step towards providing modest one-time relief in recognition of the difficult financial times high inflation is causing far too many of our state’s citizens. I hope we can also find ways of providing permanent and meaningful tax relief to taxpayers in the days ahead as we race towards the end of our formal sessions. The tremendous surplus we are enjoying needs to be shared with the hardworking citizens of the Commonwealth.”
