State Rep. Jonathan Hecht has been busy during the current legislative session and he recently wrote about his recent work on his website.
Some of the issues he worked on legislation for include opioid abuse prevention, economic development, transgender rights and pay equity.
Hecht also devoted time to energy and the Massachusetts Citizens’ Initiative Review (CIR) pilot project where a group of voters learned about an issue and wrote a statement for voters. See more details by clicking here.
Hecht also worked on increasing Local Aid, including funding for exceptionally high special education costs. He also pushed for one-time funding for a shuttle for Arsenal and Pleasant streets, and limiting the increase in the MBTA fare increase.
Other projects he has worked on include the Arsenal Corridor Study, improving the intersection at Fresh Pond Parkway and Mt. Auburn Street, reconstruction of Greenough Boulevard, the Watertown-Cambridge Greenway and the Watertown Riverfront Park.
