ON THE AIR: Senator Knapik on 22News

Senator Michael R. Knapik (right), the ranking Republican on the Senate Ways and Means Committee, was interviewed this past weekend by Springfield's WWLP Channel 22 about the Senate Republican Caucus' proposal to bar illegal immigrants in Massachusetts from accessing state-funded public benefits. The proposal -- which covers a wide range of benefits including housing and higher education -- passed the Senate on a 27-10 vote during the FY2011 budget debate and is now the subject of negotiations in conference committee.
