Statement by MassBio President & CEO Robert K. Coughlin on the House Transportation Funding Bill

Feb 27, 2020

“Transportation in Massachusetts is a growing economic development and talent recruitment and retention issue in the life sciences and beyond – one that MassBio is committed to helping address through sound policy and funding initiatives. We are pleased to see the House propose new revenues that will help alleviate this crisis, as we know the state’s transportation problems cannot be solved without new funding. We encourage the Legislature to be bold as they finalize a transportation funding bill and include policy solutions that not only create new revenues but also change behavior. It must be a broad enough package to tackle not only near-term problems but also to provide adequate resources to future-proof the transportation system for generations. If Massachusetts wants to remain the best place in the world for the life sciences, our state needs to have a best in the world transportation system.”

– Robert K. Coughlin, President & CEO of MassBio
