On November 8, 2022, Massachusetts voters passed Question 1: the Fair Share Amendment. We chose a fairer tax system, guaranteeing that the richest one percent will pay more to fund our public schools, colleges, roads, bridges, and public transit.

Now, Fair Share is at work, funding $1 billion of transportation and public education investments in the current state budget—with more to come.

Here's how the first $1 billion of Fair Share funding is being spent:

Public Schools


for construction projects and green infrastructure in public schools, from kindergarten through 12th grade

$69 million

to give every child free school meals, saving families hundreds of dollars a year

for MBTA infrastructure, including repairs, maintenance, and improvements

$205.8 million
