Media Alert: Discussing Election Law Changes

Today I have been interviewed by a variety of news organizations regarding proposed changes to Massachusetts Election Laws to give the governor the authority to appoint an interim United States Senator to fill a vacancy pending an election to select a successor.

In action on the Senate floor this afternoon, I have laid this bill (H. 4246) on the table until Monday to allow Senators and our constituents the opportunity to review and contemplate several amendments to the bill, which were filed this morning, and its potential impacts now and in the future.

Look for segments on WBZ-TV, WBZ Radio (AM 1030), New England Cable News Network (NECN) and others throughout the day.
