Beacon Hill lawmakers are five weeks into a new two-year session, and things are off to a pretty slow start.
Many legislators, elected officials and judges in Massachusetts are now in line for much bigger paychecks. That’s after the legislature last week overrode Governor Charlie Baker’s veto of a pay raise bill.
Massachusetts lawmakers pushed through their first major piece of legislation of the new session last week: a pay raise for themselves. This week, they may override Governor Baker’s veto of that bill.
Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno says he’s stayed out of the debate over a proposed pay raise for his position.
