Massachusetts Adjourns Formal Session
The Massachusetts Legislature adjourned its formal session on July 31 with a flurry of activity.
Lawmakers passed several significant pieces of legislation, including a campaign finance law requiring certain independent expenditure-only committees to disclose their top five contributors, a law regulating services like Uber and Lyft, and bills funding state infrastructure projects.
The Legislature will continue to hold informal sessions until the body is adjourned sine die in January of 2017.
