As Senate Chair of Higher Education, Senator Jo Comerford was asked to join a statement from the Healey/Driscoll Administration in response to today’s Supreme Court announcement regarding affirmative action:

Senator Comerford also issued the following statement:

“As a Commonwealth, Massachusetts has always valued access to higher education as a key tool to advance opportunity for all. Education can help close the aching racial wealth gap, dramatically improve health outcomes, and open up myriad doors to opportunity and equitable economic growth. This misguided Supreme Court decision threatens to turn back the clock on decades of progress. Thankfully, Massachusetts will not yield. At this moment – perhaps more than ever before – I am heartened by the Senate’s generational investment in public higher education in the fiscal year 2024 budget and the work ahead to make community college free.”
