Eileen McAnneny, executive director of the business-backed Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, said the Senate’s approach is “woefully inadequate.” “There are serious financial challenges plaguing the T,” she said. “And it looks like [the Senate is] putting the burden on the administration to change everything without giving them the tools they had requested.”
How well the administration keeps key parts of state government running with a sudden exodus of thousands of employees will, in large measure, determine how sustained Baker’s victory is, said Eileen McAnneny, president of the business-backed Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation.
“I think it was a fiscally responsible budget; certainly they held the line on spending,” said Eileen McAnneny, president of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation. “It looks like they have different, or slightly different, priorities than the administration — for example spending a little more on K-12 education and a little less on public safety.”
