Brad Bedingfield and Pat Moore will present a webinar on How Nonprofits can Participate in Massachusetts Ballot Initiatives on April 4, 2018 at 10:00am for the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network (MNN).
Increasingly in Massachusetts, hot-button policy issues are being decided on the ballot, rather than on Beacon Hill. In 2016, for example, voters were asked to decide whether to increase the number of charter schools (they said no) and whether to legalize recreational marijuana (they said yes). The 2018 ballot promises to be even more crowded. Voters will be asked to approve an increase in the minimum wage, a rollback in the state sales tax, and a paid family medical leave insurance program and potentially a millionaires tax. How can nonprofits participate in these policy decisions? In this webinar, Hemenway & Barnes’ attorneys Brad Bedingfield and Pat Moore will provide an overview of federal tax law and state campaign finance law and provide a roadmap for nonprofits to follow when navigating ballot initiatives.
