UNDERSTANDING THE SAFE COMMUNITIES ACT
Pittsfield, 7-8:30 p.m.
A conversation about the Safe Communities Act will be held at Herberg Middle School, 501 Pomeroy Ave, Pittsfield, with Berkshire Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier, Mayor Linda Tyer of Pittfield and the Western Massachusetts ACLU’s William Newman. The Safe Communities Act of Massachusetts (Senate Bill #1305) has been much in the news lately. The recent hearing by the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security was a marathon, standing-room-only session. Proponents state that this bill will make our communities safer, using police resources to fight crime rather than to break up families. What does the Safe Communities Act actually say? Is there a basis for such legislation in the United States Constitution? What might its passage mean to local communities in the Berkshires? And, more generally, how do bills move through the legislative process?
