Vote selection and interpretation by representatives of Mass Scorecard without approval or participation from the Massachusetts Democratic Party.

Voted NO on rejecting $25M earmarked for Housing Trust Fund.
Platform indicates voting NO in Part VII: Housing:Urban Investment.

Gov. Romney vetoed a budget line item (“Section 239”) which would earmark $25 million for the Smart Growth Housing Trust Fund. The $25 million came from a one-time sale of surplus properties. Romney recommended placing the money into the General Fund instead. A no vote would maintain the earmark of the $25 million while a yes vote would agree with Romney’s amendment.

Relevant platform section: Urban Investment: We back the establishment of community development banks and recognize the vital role of community-based development organizations in providing affordable housing.

Bill Amendment Override, Sec. 239 ; vote number MA04-H700 on Jul 8, 2004
