NOTES BETWEEN PRINTED EDITIONS
As the Mass. Democrat Lesbian Extremist Illegal Alien Loving Gov. Maura ‘Hold-it if you don’t want to be in the bathroom with a guy’ Healey continues to import illegals into the state, filling hotels/motels, and causing a wave into the schools, the State Senate met for all of five minutes today. No mention of the Healey’s Invasion, and apparent plans to add 1,000 illegal families/week to Massachusetts.
Senate Session Summary – Monday, Sept. 11, 2023
State House News Service
The Senate observed a moment of silence during its brief Monday session in memory of the 2,977 people killed in the terrorist attack “22 years and a few hours ago,” as Sen. Ryan Fattman put it. “And the ripple effect that we have felt in our society, amongst all of us, still exists today,” the Sutton Republican said on the Senate floor. The Senate’s one piece of legislative business Monday was agreeing to admit a new House resolve that would set up a special commission to examine “the welfare and best interest considerations” of children involved in care and protection cases. Sponsored by Reps. Carol Doherty and Patricia Haddad, that resolve is headed to the Committee on Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities. – Sam Doran

IN MEMORIAM – VICTIMS OF 9/11 ATTACK: Sen. Fattman of Sutton was recognized to make remarks. He said, Twenty-two years and a few hours ago, the United States was attacked by terrorists in New York City; Shanksville, Pennsylvania; and Washington, D.C. Two thousand nine hundred and seventy seven individuals lost their lives that day. And the ripple effect that we have felt in our society, amongst all of us, still exists today. On behalf of the Massachusetts Senate, I’d like to offer a moment of silence in recognition of all those men and women who lost their lives, including those in blue, red, and our first responders who rushed into those buildings to save lives. And finally, all the military men and women who since have served our nation, or perhaps were inspired to because of the events of this day, 22 years and a few hours ago.
The Senate observed a moment of silence.
IN MEMORIAM – JEANETTE GREELEY: Sen. Collins of South Boston moved that Thursday’s adjournment be in memory of Mrs. Jeanette (Snyder) Greeley of South Boston, who died Aug. 7.

The motion prevailed and the Senate rose for a moment of silence.
