LAWMAKERS FACE PRESSURE TO FINALIZE SOLDIERS HOME BILL

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, NOV. 13, 2017....Much of the attention over the next three days will be paid to the House's criminal justice debate and a possible vote in the Senate on free birth control coverage.

But as the Legislature backs into its mid-session recess, there's really only one bill on the radar that must be finished by midnight Wednesday -- a $244 million borrowing bill for the Chelsea Soldier's Home and western Massachusetts broadband access.

The House approved the "immediate needs" bond bill (H 4015) last Wednesday, separating those items from a larger $3.55 billion long-term capital infrastructure bill that began advancing in the House on Monday in anticipation of a vote by Wednesday.
