EBC Breakfast Program: Legislative Affairs Briefing with Congressman Capuano @ Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C.
Sep 15 @ 8:00 am – 9:30 am

Plan to attend this breakfast meeting with Congressman Michael Capuano and learn about current developments in our nation’s capital that can have an impact on your business and your clients. Take this unique opportunity to meet with this important congressman and discuss issues of importance to the businesses of energy, environment and climate change.

Michael Everett Capuano is serving his eighth term as a Representative in Congress for Massachusetts’ Eighth District, which includes Cambridge, Chelsea, Somerville and approximately 70% of Boston. He is a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the House Committee on Financial Services.

From the Boston Globe, July 16, 2014:

With only two weeks before Congress is to begin a month long recess, House and Senate lawmakers have yet to come to terms on how to replenish the Highway Trust Fund, putting nearly 115,000 projects around the country, including 926 in Massachusetts, in jeopardy.

The House on Tuesday approved legislation, by a 367-55 vote, that would provide $10.8 billion, enough to fund the projects until May 2015. The Senate could take up similar legislation later this week, and President Obama has suggested he would sign it.

But no one was happy about another temporary solution. In the past, Congress has often passed multiyear transportation spending bills.

“This is crazy. It’s a crazy way to run business,” said Representative Michael Capuano, a Somerville Democrat who is on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. “No one who cares about transportation could call this a good deal. But unfortunately it’s the best deal we can get at the moment. And something is better than nothing.
