The Massachusetts Budget Crisis

Who Hurts? Who Pays?

This workshop reviews the Massachusetts budget and the current crisis, with an emphasis on Question 1, the 2010 ballot initiative to eliminate the state income tax. The workshop also considers how the worsening budget crisis has impacted our communities, demonstrates that unwise tax cuts in the 1990s was a major cause of the current budget crisis, and explores opportunities to advocate. This interactive workshop is designed to last 60 to 90 minutes.
