As the formal legislative session wraps up on Beacon Hill, a nursing home reform bill is still making its way through the process. The Massachusetts House has passed a bill. The senate has not. The formal session ends July 31. COVID-19 highlighted problematic issues at nursing homes. Now is the time to address them.
AARP Massachusetts is advocating for you. We're doing everything we can to make your neighborhoods, towns, cities, and rural areas great places to live for people of all ages. Massachusetts communities should have safe, walkable streets, age-friendly housing, transportation options, and opportunities for residents of all ages to stay active.
Both the Massachusetts House & Senate have passed legislation that will allow Accessary Dwelling Units (ADUs) to be built "by right". This would allow homeowners across the state to build units on their property. Currently, ADUs are regulated by cities and towns.
