MassLive: Sen. Ed Markey rejoices as Massachusetts set to receive more than $131 million in low income heating assistance funding

With Massachusetts slated to receive nearly $132 million in low income heating assistance funds, Democratic U.S. Sen. Ed Markey is thanking the Department of Health & Human Services for releasing the funds, which were approved to help families in the commonwealth stay warm this coming winter.

Markey and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, both Massachusetts Democrats, recently signed a letter sent to the department’s Secretary Sylvia Burwell, asking for the funds to be issued well ahead of the onset of the cold weather.
