As we move towards a new normal in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, revenue and the success of our Commonwealth go hand in hand... It is an honor to be re-appointed to chair the Joint Committee on Revenue and continue the work of creating a revenue system that serves all of Massachusetts. ~ Senator Hinds

Massachusetts State Senate President Karen E. Spilka (D-Ashland) announced the creation of the new Senate Special Committee on Reimagining Massachusetts: Post-Pandemic Resiliency. This committee will serve as a body to synthesize information and share best practices that have been developed in response to COVID-19, as well as a forum for new ideas as to how to move forward.
COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of life... It is an honor to serve as the chair of this newly created committee focused on ensuring a prosperous future for our Commonwealth and residents post-pandemic. We must apply lessons from the pandemic to make sure we come back stronger. From digital access and the digital economy to telehealth and changing down towns, we need strategic investments moving forward. ~ Hinds
Senate President Spilka said that the Senate’s strength lies in experience...
In the Massachusetts State Senate, our strength lies in the experience, perspective and expertise each Senator brings to the table. Every Senator is a leader in his or her own right, and I am excited to embark upon the work of the 2021-2022 session with this team in place. I am particularly excited to tackle the pressing challenges of our day with our new committees on COVID-19 response, racial justice and civil rights, advanced information technology, and reimagining Massachusetts. ~ Senate President Spilka
