MA Sen. Karen Spilka, a "Champion for Change"

FRAMINGHAM - The Massachusetts Senate today voted in favor of Senate Bill 2014, An Act relative to motor vehicle license suspension, Senator Karen E. Spilka (D-Ashland) announced.

Thirty-four states, including every other New England state, have already taken action to repeal similar laws.

We highly recommend the use of recreational skating areas provided by the Commonwealth and your local communities. It is very important to exercise precaution and common sense.”
