Governor Baker Signs Bill Ferriter Scobbo & Rodophele, PC Advocated on Behalf of MEAM

On July 17th, Governor Baker signed into law a bill for which Ferriter Scobbo & Rodophele, PC advocated on behalf of its client, Municipal Electric Association of Massachusetts (“MEAM”). The new law amends General Laws, chapter 164, Section 56D by raising to $50,000 the amount under which MEAM members do not have to advertise for the purchase of equipment, supplies or materials. Among other things, the change allows  MEAM members to better compete in today’s utility industry. MEAM is comprised of all 41 municipal light plants in Massachusetts.  This new law is an example of Ferriter Scobbo helping its clients solve their problems in the Statehouse.
