MassHAFCC has been working feverishly over the past few weeks to keep House Bill 52 on the forefront of legislators and decision makers alike. Last week alone, we visited the State House twice, met with staff from the Governor's office and updated our social media outlets (Facebook, LinkedIn, blog) numerous times with the most current developments and discoveries.
As we head into the home stretch, we ask for a show of solidarity behind House Bill 52 from the citizens + families in the Commonwealth. Even if you have contacted your Representative and State Senator's office in the past, please contact them again as soon as possible.
Ask them to call Leadership to express support from their district and to request this bill be moved favorably out of committee (House Ways and Means) for a vote on both floors before session ends on 31 July. That should only take a few minutes of your time to impact a child for a lifetime.

While you have the phone in hand, please place companion phone calls to the offices of Senate President Therese Murray and Speaker Robert DeLeo and Governor Deval Patrick and ask them to pass House Bill 52 *this* session.
· Senate President Murray: 617-722-1500
· House Speaker DeLeo: 617-722-2500
· Governor Patrick: 617.725.4005 (Boston) 413.784.1200 (Springfield)
As always, please return to this blog http://masshafcc.blogspot.com/ for the most current information. *Many* heartfelt thanks for your continued support, especially during these last weeks of session.
Be sure to forward to all friends + families who chose to have their voices heard so our children can hear.
