CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - Governor Patrick just signed a $125 million supplemental budget for the 2013 fiscal year.
It includes $10 million of funding for summer jobs for at-risk teens and nearly $56 million to pay for last winter's snow and ice removal.
The Governor is also supporting a requirement to put photos on EBT cars that are used by welfare recipients.
Supporters of the measure say it will help cut down on fraud and abuse.
Edward Barkoh of West Springfield told 22News, "I think it's a good idea and I don't understand why it wasn't done in the first place. The taxpayers of America are trying to do a good thing by helping citizens in need. But if it's being abused by the public, then it definitely needs to be taken care of."
Governor Patrick says he wants state officials to review the effectiveness of the photo ID in three years.
