POTENTIAL FOR FEDERAL AND STATE TAX LAW CHANGES MUDDY FY19 BUDGET PICTURE

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, DEC. 6, 2017.....State senators "came away discouraged" from a Washington, D.C. trip last month to talk revenue and spending with federal officials, one lawmaker who made the trip said Wednesday as the process of building next year's state budget began.

Sen. Sal DiDomenico, the vice chair of the Senate Ways and Means Committee, recapped the trip at an annual hearing exploring the outlook for the next fiscal year as he asked Treasurer Deborah Goldberg to weigh in on the tax bills that have passed both branches of Congress.

"We were a little surprised by their lack of empathy. We expected some, but we were shocked, really, to hear that our concerns weren't really important to them," DiDomenico said. "The impression we got as senators and our staff was that they were moving forward, regardless of what we thought."
