The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association is urging members to reach out to their state representatives to ask them to support a $100,000 budget amendment.

Filed by co-sponsors Chairman Straus, Chairman Michlewitz, Boating Caucus Chair Susan Gifford, representative Barrows and others, Amendment #1207 would add $100,000 to the state budget for the MMTA to increase workforce development training opportunities and technical education in secondary and post-secondary schools for careers in the marine trades in Massachusetts.

For more information contact MMTA General Counsel Jamy Madeja at 617-256-8491 or jmadeja@buchananassociates.com.
