Urge Your Legislators to Support the MTA-Backed Cherish Act!
The MTA is supporting legislation that would end the decades-long downward spiral in state funding for public higher education by requiring a significant reinvestment in our public colleges and universities.
The Cherish Act, filed by Senator Jo Comerford (D-Northampton), Representative Sean Garballey (D-Arlington) and Representative Paul Mark (D-Peru), would reaffirm the Commonwealth’s commitment to public higher education through the establishment of a fair and adequate minimum funding level for our public colleges and universities.
