Update on State of Massachusetts Bills: H01513 and H02361

As many of you are aware, two legislative bills have been introduced to the State of Massachusetts legislature.  Both have the possibility of impacting our industry.
Last week, I traveled to Boston for the purpose of meeting face to face with bill authors, legislators, committee members, and soap makers in our industry.  I had four meetings and found each of them to be cooperative, positive and encouraging. 
Today I submitted written testimony for these bills on behalf of Wholesale Supplies Plus.  I have included links to that testimony for your review. 
I look forward to continuing to work on behalf of the industry.  When there is legislative news worthy of communication, I am happy to pass it along via this blog.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly.
