More than 100 housing-related bills are expected to be heard this week on Beacon Hill. One of them calls for a 180-day moratorium on foreclosures of buildings that house four separate households.
Another bill is called the “Act to Sustain Community Preservation.” It calls for the current $20 registry fee to be “adjusted” (i.e. increased) to ensure a steady stream of state funds for local preservation projects.
Some of these bills may indeed be worthy. But what’s the old line about no free man being safe when the Legislature is in session?
