Last week the House of Representatives included a provision in its budget to exempt the MBTA from the Taxpayer Protection Act, which ensures that taxpayer dollars are spent wisely by subjecting proposed privatization measures to a cost-benefit analysis performed by the State Auditor. If adopted, this proposal would result in private contractors being allowed to bid on jobs and services currently performed by union workers -- with no cost-benefit analysis and no assurance that services will be upheld.
