At the next monthly meeting of the Lynnfield Democratic Town Committee members will hear two speakers address two 2022 ballot questions.
Brian Monterio, Director of Governmental Affairs & Public Relations at the Massachusetts Dental Society will talk about question 2: regulation of dental insurance, in particular medical loss ratios for dental plans. As noted in the information sent to voters from the Secretary of State’s office “a yes vote would regulate dental insurance rates…by requiring companies to spend at least 83% of premiums on member dental expenses…”
State Senator Brendan Crighton will discuss question 4, the plan to offer drivers’ licenses to undocumented immigrants. Law enforcement agencies such as the Massachusetts Major City Chiefs of Police are in favor of the bill. Insurance companies also support the bill since those who now drive illegally would obtain auto insurance. Information on the bill is not included in the ballot questions booklet which was passed after the brochure was printed. Many other states have such a law.
The meeting will be held on Zoom on Wednesday, October 19 at 7:00 pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
