Kevin Lembo: “Despite my general reluctance about the state picking winners and losers, I have been willing to cautiously support economic assistance to private companies - but the size, scope and nature of this particular proposal stands out and meets a new threshold that compels me to vote against it."

TERRY COWGILL: “In examining this issue, the most important question to ask yourself is whether the new rules will actually have the intended effect. I’m a believer in the macroeconomic principle that if you make something more expensive, fewer people will buy it. The same goes for employers. Make labor more expensive and employers will hire fewer workers, or they’ll find a way around the new rules.”
