Massachusetts House drags its feet on legislation 2 months into session

MassterList on the current status of the Healey Administration’s tax reform and relief proposal, which includes an overhaul of the Massachusetts estate tax:

No hearing has been scheduled on the tax reform and relief proposal Healey filed more than two weeks ago, and leaders in the House — where the tax bill must pass first if it is to become law — appear in no rush. 

[Speaker of the House Ronald] Mariano said last month that “the situation has changed” since both chambers last session agreed to a similar, but ill-fated proposal that later died. The Quincy Democrat last month mentioned having “some hearings” on tax relief, but none have been scheduled.
