SOMERVILLE GLX $$$ BILL GETTING TRACTION

A dozen bills cleared the Joint Committee on Municipalities and Regional Government on Tuesday, including one that would allow Somerville to impose development fees to pay for the Green Line Extension, the committee said.

Rep. Denise Provost's bill (H 3882) got a public hearing Tuesday and was endorsed by the full committee during an executive session held immediately afterward. If passed by the House and Senate, the bill would allow Somerville to impose fees on certain development projects to fund its $50 million portion of the Green Line Extension.
