Thank your Legislators for Passing the Fair Share Amendment!
What Happened: On Wednesday, June 12th by a final vote of 147 - 48, our elected officials in the MA Legislature passed the Fair Share Amendment! This 75% favorable margin is the HIGHEST we've ever achieved for Fair Share.
What's Next: This vote was the first of three constitutional hurdles for Fair Share to soar passed. Now, Fair Share is positioned to be voted on in the next legislative cycle where we'll need more than 50% of the vote in order for our constitutional amendment to land on the 2022 ballot for ratification by all of us - the voters of Massachusetts.
What Can You Do: Send an email, make a phone call, and Tweet at your legislator thanking them for their courageous vote!
Why? Our opposition will continue to attack our coalition and our legislative champions from now all the way through the 2022 ballot campaign. We need to show our legislators that we have their backs and that between now, the next session, and ultimately the ballot campaign in 2022 - we're not backing down from this fight! It's time the wealthiest among us pay their fair share, it's time we invest in roads, bridges, trains, and schools, and it's time we #PassFairShare
