MLAC snags $1 million in supplemental funding
The House Ways and Means Committee is considering a supplemental
budget today that provides an additional $1 million to the
Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation. Legal service programs
across the state have experienced deep cuts in recent years due to
the enormous drop in IOLTA funding. Additionally, the need for
legal services has dramatically increased due to the economic
crisis. The supplemental budget could come before the full House as
early as today.
