BOSTON — Republican lawmakers announced the schedule for their Hardship Listening Tour, but due to tremendous response, Republicans have been asked to host an additional forum in Townsend.
The additional stop will take place on March 30 at the North Middlesex Regional High School from 7 to 9 p.m. The listening tour is a statewide effort to give constituents an opportunity to voice concerns about the possible gas tax increase, toll hikes and the litany of other proposed tax and fee increases.
The tour, which will wrap up on March 30 has already made five stops, while two remain on the schedule. The additional stop was scheduled in order to give taxpayers all over the state a chance to make it to one of the open forums.
The remaining schedule for the listening tour is as follows:
* March 24, Westfield Athenaeum, 6 to 7:30 p.m., sponsored by Reps. Donald Humason and Todd Smola and Sen. Michael Knapik
* March 30, North Middlesex Regional High School, 7 to 9 p.m., sponsored by Reps. Bob Hargraves, Brad Jones and George Peterson.
