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:
for construction projects and green infrastructure in public schools, from kindergarten through 12th grade
to give every child free school meals, saving families hundreds of dollars a year
for MBTA infrastructure, including repairs, maintenance, and improvements
for regional transit authorities, including expanded service hours, route expansions, and making fares free
Public Colleges and Universities
for financial aid to students at public colleges
for tuition-free community college
Roads and Bridges
for the construction and repair of roads and bridges across the state
Early Education and Care
to expand access to high-quality childcare and pre-K to more children and families
