Statement from Governor Patrick on Proposed Amendment to the Crime Bill


Location: Boston, MA

The following is a statement from Governor Deval Patrick:

"I want a bill to sign before the Legislature ends its session. I think legislators do, too. If they do, they will enact the proposed amendment.

I urge the Legislature to amend the bill as I have proposed before their formal session ends tomorrow."
