Description and Holding Information
House. Comm. on Amending the Constitution. Report, 1828
H.R. No. 24 On January 9, 1928, a large committee was directed to consider amending the state Constitution by dividing it into districts to elect
Representatives to the Legislature. On January 25, 1828, the committee reported it was inexpedient to do so. Mr. Savage, of Boston, moved to amend the
report. Every ten years, using data from the federal census of population, the state would be divided into as nearly equal districts as possible.
The costs of travel and attendance at legislative sessions would be paid by the state. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by
the Massachusetts State Library).
