Legislature Enacts Bill for Appointed Milford Treasurer

The Legislature has enacted a bill that would make the Milford Town Treasurer position appointed, announced Sen. Richard T. Moore, D-Uxbridge, and Rep. John V. Fernandes, D-Milford. The legislation now travels to the Governor for his signature of approval.

"I was pleased to join with Rep. Fernandes in seeking expeditious passage of this bill so that Milford may move forward with appointing a new Treasurer, in accordance with the decision of the Milford Town Meeting," said Moore. "This is just one example of the work the Legislature does even though neither the Senate nor the House is meeting in formal sessions [during which debate is conducted and roll call votes are taken] until the beginning of the New Year."

"I am pleased that the Senator and I were able to respond rapidly to the Milford Town Meeting decision to move the Town Treasurer's position from elected to appointed," Fernandes said. "This matter could not wait given that the election season is just around the corner. We will request a swift review by the Governor's staff in the hope of immediate approval by his office as well."

At an October 21 Special Town Meeting, the Milford Town Meeting voted to request special legislation that would change the town treasurer position from elected to appointed.

Wielding the gavel from the rostrum as President Pro Tempore, Moore on December 2 led his colleagues in passing the measure in the Senate, while the House also voted for final approval.

With the legislation having cleared both Senate and House, the enacted legislation is sent to the Governor who has ten days to sign the bill into law, allow the unsigned bill to become law, veto the legislation, or send the bill back to the Legislature with recommended amendments.
