Legislators from the South Shore sent a follow-up letter to Presiding Officer Jane Rothchild to thank her for granting an extension to the deadline for submission of testimony. In their letter, the delegation expresses the public's loss of confidence in the DEP's permitting and appeals process. They also urge the DEP to reject the air quality plan approval. Thank you to State Senator Patrick O’Connor, State Representative James M. Murphy, State Senator John F. Keenan, State Representative Ron Mariano, State Representative Joan Meschino, State Senator Walter F. Timilty, State Representative Tackey Chan, State Representative Bruce Ayers, and State Representative Mark Cusack. We are very grateful to have their ongoing support.
