Recent Massachusetts home buyers know that prices are high, and Governor Baker says the good thing about this $1.8 billion housing bond bill is that it will create more housing that more people can afford.
"I certainly think about young people and young families when I think about the cost of housing in Massachusettes because I've got three kids and I would love to see them all living here someday," said the Governor. "But I also think about it as it relates to our senior population."
Governor Baker signed the housing bill at a Brighton construction site for what will be a large affordable housing complex for the elderly, an example of what the largest housing bond bill in the state's history is designed to do.
"This bill will give us tremendous support," Governor Baker continued. "Not just housing, but housing associated with a whole series of other elements that makes that housing a home."
