FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey’s “Cutting Taxes, Saving You Money” tour took her to Fall River on Friday.
Healey gave highlights of her tax cuts package, which includes a wide range of incentives and credits.
“Lowering the cost of living in Massachusetts is our top priority, and the number-one driver of high costs is housing,” Healey said. “Over the last few weeks, we have traveled the state to make sure everyone knows how our tax cuts will save them money and spur the housing development we need to lower costs, especially in gateway cities like Fall River.”
“These cuts are a critical step to make Massachusetts more affordable and expand our housing supply to help meet the needs of our communities and our economy,” she added.
Healey was joined by Fall River Mayor Paul Coogan and other state and local leaders.
“The combination of tax cuts and housing money is a great stimulus for cities like Fall River,” Coogan said. “We have been pushing this for a long time.”
