Mass. House, Senate lawmakers plan budget hearings

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts residents who want to weigh in on the proposed state budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1 will have plenty of opportunities.

The Massachusetts House and Senate Ways and Means committees have scheduled joint public hearings across the state over the next several weeks.

The next public hearing is scheduled for Wednesday at the student center at Worcester State University. The focus will be on proposed spending for the judiciary and public safety, including district attorneys' offices.

Subsequent hearings are scheduled for Arlington, Everett, Fitchburg, Greenfield and Hanover.

A final hearing is set for March 8 at the Statehouse.

The House and Senate need to deliver a final budget bill to Gov. Deval Patrick's desk before the end of the current fiscal year on June 30.
