BOSTON — The Massachusetts Legislature’s Joint Committee on Community Development and Small Businesses reported favorably on House Bill 144 — “An Act Establishing Community Benefit Districts,” clearing the first major hurdle on its way to a vote on the floor of the House of Representatives.

This legislation, sponsored by state Rep. Brendan Crighton (D-Lynn) and Sen. Eileen Donoghue (D-Lowell), would provide cities and towns with the opportunity to create Community Benefit Districts (CBD).

“Community Benefit Districts provide cities and towns with a sustainable way of providing a high level of programming and services—from sidewalk shoveling to farmers’ markets — for their downtowns and Main Streets,” said Crighton.
