Massachusetts Senates Votes in Favor of Vests


Thursday May 26th, the Senate voted 17-20 to reject a Republican-sponsored amendment after Senate Ways and Means Chairwoman Karen Spilka said bulletproof vests were already funded through a different source.  Then, in the final hour before passing a $39.5 billion budget bill, the Senate reversed itself and voted 37-1 in favor of funding the vests.  Safety for law enforcement was already at the top of many minds around the state after Auburn,  Massachusetts  police officer Ronald Tarentino was shot to death during a traffic stop early Sunday morning.
