An Act relative to larceny

Massachusetts is a major outlier when looking at the threshold separating a misdemeanor from a felony in many larceny related crimes.  Our threshold is currently $250.  That is the 3rd lowest in the country and has not been updated in 2 decades.  What would be a misdemeanor in all other New England states would be a felony here, with all the collateral consequences that attach to felony convictions.  This bill raises the threshold to $1500.
