|Name||Party||Increases||Decreases||Net Spending Agenda||# of Increases||# of Decreases|
- Massachusetts’ House delegation proposed just under $3 trillion in total spending.
- With an average net spending agenda of nearly $333 billion, Massachusetts’ House delegation had the 6th highest average spending agenda in the lower chamber.
- Representative James McGovern supported legislation that would increase federal spending by almost $1.3 trillion. This made Rep. McGovern’s spending agenda the 23rd largest in all of Congress.
- The Senate delegation from Massachusetts (consisting simply of Senator Warren because Senator Markey is newly elected) proposed over $28 billion dollars in total spending. Senator Warren supported the 13th largest spending agenda in the Senate.
