    First of all, apologizes for not posting this sooner. It has been a hectic couple of days for Kevin.

    As many of you know, Kevin testified before the legislature's Joint Committee on the Judiciary two days ago (Tuesday, 17 September 2019) on four pending bills before them - HB 1433, SB 943, SB 944, and SB 1833. He was the only speaker to address these 4 bills.

    He was only given 3 minutes to speak. Even with that short amount of time, he reports making good use of the time allotted. He was asked to provided follow-up written testimony to the Committee.

    As such, if you have any information (please include citations & statistics) that you would like Kevin to include, please email him directly at kfjura@gmail.com or kevin.jura@massachusettsjusticeofthepeace.org.

    Thank you, Kevin.

    Today at the General meeting, two state senators joined us to share information about three bills pending in the legislature. Bills: 943- raises the fee for one day solomnizers. 944-permits JPs to advertise on the internet. S1833- raises the amount JPs can charge.

    These bills go to hearings this Tuesday. The outcome will affect our Massachusetts Justices and we have to take steps to lobby for these efforts right away. You can find your State Representative and your State Senator at the attached link. You can determine your government officials, his or her email address, and access instruction as to properly addressing your official in your email message.
