The MassAccess Board of Directors met on November 17, 2021, for their monthly meeting which was held at WinCAM in Winchester, MA. The Board received legislative updates along with information on the Creator Awards.
The Legislative Committee reported that are awaiting a hearing date for S.2200. The committee has been meeting regularly with State Representative Joan Meschino to discuss next steps for H.130 and S.2200. As many know, H.130 had its hearing with the Joint Committee on Advanced Information Technology, the Internet, and Cybersecurity, however still awaiting a hearing date for S.2200 with the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities, and Energy. We will update the MassAccess Membership on when that will be happening, so look for that hearing date in your inbox and the forum.
