On February 6, 2023, the MMLA submitted comments to the Joint Committee on Municipalities and Regional Government regarding HB 2043. This bill seeks to amend Massachusetts General Law Chapter 40, Section 21D, relative to non-criminal enforcement of local ordinances, by-laws and regulations, by increasing the maximum fine amount and adding a new section, allowing the Court to assess a civil penalty and reasonable attorney fees against a defendant found in violation. 

A copy of the MMLA's comment letter is available here.
