Summary of 2019-20 Bills

  • Senators and State Representatives directly sponsored eight bills this session, most of which were introduced in prior sessions. We recognize public policy in Massachusetts is a marathon, not a sprint, and it bodes well that many of the bills progressed through important steps last session with the Joint Committees on Public Health, Education, and Consumer Protection.

  • Constituents have also written an additional set of bills that are presented by their legislators. See below for both sets of bills.

  • If you are not in Massachusetts, please consider using these to ask your own legislators to file similar man-made radiation bills where you are. Some other states are already introducing bills too.

  • After the bills were assigned to committees, a public hearing was held for each bill. We are grateful to the many citizens, scientists, health care practitioners and others who sent in written testimony, and to those who joined us at the MA State House to testify in person before many of the committees.

  • Even during the COVID-19 pandemic and racial justice movement, our legislators have seen fit to continue to advance the highlighted bills below. Please contact your State Senator and Representative to encourage full passage of these critical bills.

The following bills have also been newly introduced by request from constituents:
