DEMPSEY REMAINS CHAIR AS HE TRANSITIONS TO LOBBYING FIRM

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Brian Dempsey announced Thursday that he plans to step down to join a Boston-based lobbying firm, but Dempsey hasn't said when he'll step down, only that it will be sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Meanwhile, the Haverhill Democrat continues to helm the House's most powerful committee, one that by Monday will be in receipt of amendments and vetoes Gov. Charlie Baker hands down when he acts on the $40.2 billion state budget. The Ways and Means Committee also has more than two dozen other bills before it that were recommended by other committees.
