Under the provisions of M.G.L. c. 30A, and pursuant to M.G.L. c.6, §99, the Boxers’ Fund Board will hold a public hearing for the purposes of gathering comments, ideas, and information concerning overall revisions to 529 CMR.   The revisions incorporate the change in M.G.L. c.147, §40A requiring that financial need be based on an injury sustained during an event, and update outdated provisions, including those limiting eligibility for funds to boxers only, rather than all fighters regulated by the State Athletic Commission.   

The public hearing is scheduled for April 25, 2014, in the Department of Public Safety conference room on the 13th  Floor of the McCormack Building at One Ashburton Place, Boston, MA 02108.
