Mr. Patrick F. Scanlan
Clerk of the Senate
State House, Room 335
Boston, Massachusetts 02133
Dear Mr. Clerk:
Due to a scheduling conflict, I was out of state on January 18, 2001 when the Senate met in formal session to consider the adoption of amendments to the Senate’s rules for the 2001-2002 legislative session.
Had I been present, I would have voted in the negative on the proposed amendment concerning changes in the appointment of members to the standing Committee on Ethics. I also would have voted in the affirmative on the main question of adopting Senate Bill 1818, as amended, relative to the rules of the Senate for the 2001-2002 legislative session.
I would respectfully request that a copy of this letter be printed in the Senate Journal as part of the official record for January 18. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
