It is no secret that Massachusetts and our nation have witnessed the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.  With dwindling resources, many decisions were extremely difficult to make; I insisted on preserving funding for our districts most basic needs.  Though we have seen some improvement in our economic outlook in Massachusetts, we have a long way to go.

We have another challenging year ahead of us and I want you to know that I am as determined as ever to make thoughtful, informed decisions that are in the best interest of my constituency.  I look forward to hearing from you about the issues that concern you and your family.

I will continue to strongly advocate for North Central Massachusetts so that our communities are an even better place to live, work and learn! Feel free to contact me at anytime at 978-466-8605 or info@jenflanagan.com.

Senate Passes Natural Gas Leaks Legislation

BOSTON – The Senate on Thursday unanimously passed a bill that establishes natural gas leak classification standards, requiring gas companies to repair the most dangerous leaks immediately, and aligns civil penalties for pipeline facility and gas transportation safety violations with federal law, Senator Jennifer L. Flanagan (D-Leominster) announced.

“This important legislation will ensure that aging infrastructure is properly inspected and maintained to avoid unsafe conditions throughout the Commonwealth,” stated Senator Flanagan. “Although we don’t see our gas infrastructure because it’s underground, we have to remain vigilant to ensure public safety.” 

“Natural gas leaks remain public health and safety concerns that affect communities all across the Commonwealth,” Senate President Therese Murray (D-Plymouth) said. “This bill takes important steps to ensure that these leaks are classified, prioritized and repaired accordingly, as well as encourage gas companies to create plans to proactively repair aging infrastructure and increase access to natural gas.”
