Representative Angelo D’Emilia (R-Bridgewater) was congratulated by House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) for achieving an impressive voting record for the 2013-2014 legislative session. The Bridgewater legislator participated in all 505 roll call votes cast in the House of Representatives before the end of formal sessions for the 2013-2014 legislative session, a 100% voting record.
Representative D’Emilia cast votes on a number of issues including: the repeal of the largest and broadest tax on computer and software services in the nation, a tax amnesty program which is poised to collect millions of dollars in overdue tax liabilities which might otherwise be forgone, requiring the Commonwealth to produce a full accountancy report of the costs incurred by the failed Health Connector website, and increased oversight for taxpayer-funded programs such as the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), and the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) program.
Additionally, the Bridgewater lawmaker registered votes against raising taxes by close to $2 billion, in opposition of bringing Massachusetts into compliance with the omnibus federal healthcare law prior to its implementation in January 2014, and against automatically linking the state’s gasoline tax to inflation.
“Representative D’Emilia is an incredibly committed member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, and an extremely valuable asset to the House Republican Caucus,” said Representative Jones. “The people of the 8th Plymouth District are fortunate to have Representative D’Emilia up here on Beacon Hill advocating on their behalf day after day.”
