Extra State Money Doesn't Please All

Pittsfield, MA – Massachusetts cities and towns will get more money from the state this year than they previously expected. That's because of an unexpected surplus which led to a supplemental spending bill signed by Governor Mitt Romney. But despite the extra money, not everyone is happy. Gripes stem from $76 million that Romney cut from the bill, and from those who would rather see the state sock the extra money away until the economy recovers fully. More from WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief Kelly Wilkinson.
