(Initially posted May 17, 2016)

Today, the Senate Committee on Ways and Means ("SWM" or "Senate Ways and Means") unveiled its fiscal year 2017 budget recommendations for the Commonwealth, with the theme of building "resilient children, families, and communities". This $39.5 billion budget marks the next step on the path to developing the state budget for the fiscal year that will begin on July 1st. Thursday afternoon at 5 p.m. (Thursday, May 19th) will be the deadline for Senate members to file amendments to the SWM budget, with the Senate budget debate scheduled to begin next Tuesday, May 24th.

As this is only the next of several proposals on the way to the final FY'17 budget, your voice will be critical to helping to protect housing, homelessness, and safety net programs for families, individuals, and youth.
