Sixteen Furloughs Staring…

Only sixteen state representatives have declined to take the voluntary furloughs being pushed by House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Minority Leader Brad Jones. The list, with a few exceptions, is mostly comprised of state representatives from strong Democratic districts who don’t face any serious challengers. One Republican, Rep. Robert Hargraves, made the list and could not be reached for comment. He is not seeking relection.
