KARYN POLITO

LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR

 

May 3, 2019

 

To the Honorable Senate and House of Representatives,

 

I am filing for your consideration a bill entitled “An Act Making Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019 to Provide for Supplementing Certain Existing Appropriations and for Certain Other Activities and Projects.”

This bill consists of $23.7 million in supplemental appropriations, at a net state cost of $22.0 million. 

Spending recommendations include $14 million for judgments and settlements to bring the authorization in line with projected need, $5 million for revised projections of the cost of indigent legal defense, $2 million to bring federally reimbursable expenses at the Department of Revenue back on budget, and $794,000 for smaller expenses, primarily at district attorneys’ offices. 

I further recommend increasing one chargeback ceiling.

Several spending items filed earlier this year and still pending in the Legislature require action.  I renew my request that you authorize spending within the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development, including at the new Department of Family and Medical Leave.  I would also renew my requests for authorization to support a fentanyl interdiction task force, Community Compact grants to municipalities, and an epidemiological study of cannabis use.

This bill includes 23 outside sections related to other policy matters. 

Among these are several sections making changes to the statute governing Child Support Enforcement (“CSE”) that are necessary for the Commonwealth to remain in compliance with federal requirements for the child support program and Title IV Part D of the Social Security Act.  These changes provide the Probate and Family Court flexibility when issuing a medical support order that will help to ensure that children receive health coverage from a parent by permitting the court to order the noncustodial parent to contribute to insurance premiums or uninsured medical expenses paid by the custodial parent.  Along with other changes that are needed to maintain compliance with federal requirements, the sections define a reasonable cost of health insurance as a numeric percentage of income and health care coverage as accessible if services are available within 15 miles of the child’s primary residence.  These changes are time-sensitive and I urge that their enactment occur before July 1, 2019 so as not to put at risk critical federal funding for CSE services. 

Another section in this bill would establish an alternative to the existing job order contracting option at the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (“DCAMM”) in order to expedite public accommodation and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance projects of up to $1 million.  This alternative process will allow DCAMM flexibility to improve access to public facilities in the Commonwealth.

I am also proposing a change to a section that became law as part of the Economic Development Act of 2018.  The original section authorized municipalities that have received state grants to construct a municipally-owned broadband network in an adjoining city or town and to acquire easements and other real property interest in connection with such projects.  The language that I am proposing would help to effectuate this purpose by allowing the reimbursement paid by one municipality to another to be counted as part of the grant that is being expended and not as general fund revenue for the municipality.  This change will prevent delays in communities receiving the reimbursements.

I am also proposing a change to the Commonwealth’s pension and workers’ compensation statutes that would ensure that an employee of the Commonwealth who is receiving workers’ compensation benefits and has qualified for retirement benefits receives a combined benefit of no more than the average rate of regular compensation as computed by the State Retirement Board.  This section would also limit the employee’s workers’ compensation benefit to an amount that is equal to no more than the difference between the retirement benefits and the average annual salary from which it was determined.  This change would apply to employees who are receiving workers’ compensation benefits and who apply for their pension after the effective date of these sections.

I am also proposing changes to the membership of the Military Asset and Security Strategy Task Force in order to add members from the Executive Office of Technology Services and Security and the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative as they will add valuable expertise and experience to the Task Force’s important work.

Also included is an outside section that would put into effect certain collective bargaining contracts.  I have previously recommended the creation of reserve funding for these contracts, to be used once the contracts are ratified and in effect.  Unfunded costs of the contracts now ready to go into effect total $9.3 million, and I would recommend that the Legislature authorize that additional spending through an existing collective bargaining reserve.

Additionally, three sections authorize the continuation of certain spending into fiscal year 2020. 

Finally, I renew my request for a number of policy sections that were filed earlier this year and are still pending in the Legislature.  These sections include an increase in the aggregate ceiling on the Department of Utilities’ assessments of electric and gas distribution companies; amendments to the Substance Use Disorder Trust Fund; a proposed requirement that school multi-hazard evacuation plans be reported to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to ensure that plans have been formulated; proposed changes to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s budget approval date; and corrections to a section that allows limited use of capital funds for employee costs that became law last year.  I am also renewing my request for sections related to the Commonwealth’s marijuana statute, including a section to clarify that the statutory definition of “horticultural use” includes hemp so as to allow for hemp to be grown on land that includes an agricultural preservation restriction, and a section prohibiting the use of EBT cards for the purchase of marijuana products.  I am also requesting corrections to the current law governing stun guns as well as a correction to the premium pay statute to include three holidays that were omitted when premium pay was reduced last year in the Grand Bargain legislation.

Sufficient revenues are estimated to be available to finance the appropriations proposed in this legislation.  Because certain items are time sensitive, including new collective bargaining contracts, I urge you to enact this legislation promptly.

Respectfully submitted

When the court makes an order of support, the court shall determine whether health care coverage for the child is available at reasonable cost and accessible to the child pursuant to section 12 of chapter 119A, and if such coverage is available, enter an order for health care coverage in accordance with said section.

The employer shall comply with the requirements of the national medical support notice, as set forth in the instructions incorporated into such notice. Where health care coverage is provided by the obligor, the employer or the provider of health care coverage shall furnish the obligee with such information as may be necessary for the child to obtain benefits through the plan and shall permit the obligee or, with the approval of the obligee, the provider of medical services to submit claims for covered services without the approval of the obligor. A claim submitted in accordance with this subsection shall be payable, as appropriate, directly to the obligee, to the provider of medical services or, if the individual has assigned his rights to medical support pursuant to Title XIX of the Social Security Act, to the division of medical assistance.
