Lawmakers charged with reshaping the state’s new congressional districts heard the last pieces of testimony Monday from fellow legislators and advocacy groups on how to draw the map that will eliminate one of the state’s 10 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. About 100 people attended the legislature’s 13th and final public hearing on redistricting, including U.S. Rep.

Rep. Lynch Introduces the Aircraft Ownership Transparency Act of 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (D-Boston), the Ranking Member of the National Security Subcommittee and a member of the Financial Services Committee’s Terrorism and Illicit Financing Subcommittee, introduced H.R. 3544, the Aircraft Ownership Transparency Act of 2017. Despite statutory requirements for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to record ownership history and lien information on civil aircraft, some aircraft owners shield their identity by registering aircraft with a trustee – a legal practice, but one that can be vulnerable to abuse, particularly when the FAA does not have information on the trustor, beneficiary, or those using the aircraft. Companies with anonymous or opaque structures can hide beneficial ownership information to mask aircraft ownership posing risks to national security and public safety. Congressman Lynch’s bipartisan Aircraft Ownership Transparency Act of 2017 requires the disclosure of beneficial ownership information

Following Concerns about the Proposed Weymouth Compressor Station and Air Quality Levels, Congressman Lynch Visited Weymouth and Braintree
BOSTON, MA – On Friday, July 21, 2017, Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (D-Boston) conducted a meeting and site visit in Weymouth and East Braintree to further review the results of independent air quality testing conducted by Doctor Curtis Nordgaard. After meeting in Weymouth with Dr. Nordgaard, as well as with Alice Arena of the Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station organization, Congressman Lynch visited the home of Mike Lang on Cotton Street in East Braintree, one of the four testing sites evaluated by Dr. Nordgaard for toxic air pollutants in the Fore River Basin. Dr. Nordgaard’s testing showed that the area surrounding the site of the proposed Weymouth Compressor Station tested at toxic levels of “criteria” air pollutants, such as ozone and lead, which is a violation of National Ambient Air Quality Standards, as well as tested at unsafe levels of hazardous pollutants, such as benzene and formaldehyde, which is a violation of the Clean Air Act. “As local famili
