Governor Patrick signs FY15 Budget with $25 Million for CPA

Governor Patrick Signing the FY15 BudgetJuly 11, 2014: At the base of the State House's Grand Staircase, Governor Deval Patrick signed the fiscal year 2015 budget, including the transfer of $25 million from the FY2014 budget surplus to the statewide CPA Trust Fund. Like last year, this additional $25 million both responds to communities' critical need for preservation funds and demonstrates the state's continued support to the Community Preservation Act. The governor expressed clear, overall support for the $36.5 billion budget, which is the last of his gubernatorial term. His version contained few vetoes, totaling less than 1 percent of the total budget.
