Contact State Reps to Support Pending Budget Amendments for UMB

6/28/2018

Dear Colleague,

Our collective action is needed to assure passage of two State Budget Amendments to support UMB!

The State House Conference Committee is still debating next year's budget. They need to hear from us so that they include our two amendments, which ensure funding for all UMB Centers & Institutes, and create a special commission to review and address UMass Boston's legacy debt. These are key pieces of the Senate budget that we want included in the final budget that is sent to Governor Baker. More information on these are attached.

Dear Colleagues,

Much has occurred around the Mount Ida acquisition.   The UMass Amherst Chancellor, Kumble R.
