Media Alert: Senator Tarr on Fox 25 Tonight

Earlier today, Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr was interviewed by Fox 25 reporter Sharman Sacchetti about Governor Patrick’s proposal to implement spending cuts and borrow money from the Rainy Day account to close an estimated $540 million shortfall in the state budget.  Senator Tarr also discussed the Governor’s plan to ask the Legislature for expanded 9C powers to cut local aid, and why he thinks the state must instead aggressively pursue a variety of options to spur economic growth and hold communities harmless.  Be sure to tune in to Fox 25’s 6 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts to see the interview.
