CONGRESSMAN KENNEDY STATEMENT ON 2013 STATE OF THE COMMONWEALTH
Newton, MA - Congressman Joe Kennedy released the following statement following Governor Deval Patrick's 2013 State of the Commonwealth address.
"Education and transportation are critical pillars in expanding economic opportunity across the Commonwealth. While there is no question we need to approach these challenges in a fiscally responsible way, the investments proposed by Governor Patrick will stimulate growth and keep Massachusetts competitive for generations to come.
I applaud the Governor’s comprehensive plan and look forward to working with the state on South Coast Rail in particular, which will deliver a much-needed economic link to cities and towns across the 4th District. Fall River, Taunton and our other communities are ripe with economic development potential. Upgrading our transportation system to meet the needs of our businesses and families is a top priority moving forward."
