Tarr Bill Requires Legislative Approval Of Olympics Bid, State House News Service, 01/26/2016
“As Olympics backers seek to win over public opinion, legislation filed by Senate Republicans would require the House and Senate to approve a bid for the games before any state dollars are expended on them. . . A bill [Senator Bruce] Tarr filed with Wrentham Sen. Richard Ross would require at least one public hearing on the Olympic bid to be conducted by the House and Senate Ways and Means committees. Tarr’s bill would require the Legislature to pass a special act approving of the Olympic bid before Bay State dollars could be spent on anything associated with the games.”
