ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey is using the bully pulpit to press the legislature to pass her newly proposed Affordable Homes Act, a $4 billion bond bill that would increase state spending on housing while making it easier to build new units.
Healey held a news conference Tuesday afternoon with local officials in Attleboro to promote the measure, standing in front of Union Mills 37, a once-derelict factory building that has now been turned into a 57-unit apartment complex.
