STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, DEC. 4, 2017.....Senators have a choice when they gather Monday afternoon for an unusual December formal session just hours after Sen. Stanley Rosenberg announced he plans to vacate the office of the Senate president: elect an acting Senate president or pick a new president altogether.

The Senate held a brief informal session at 11 a.m. Monday and adopted an order to meet again at 1 p.m. Monday, this time in a formal session to determine how the Senate will proceed with an investigation into allegations that Rosenberg's husband, Bryon Hefner, sexually assaulted or harassed four men whose jobs were connected to Beacon Hill.

Rosenberg, in a letter shared with members of his leadership team at a meeting Monday morning, said he intends to take a "leave of absence as your president, effective immediately" for as long as the investigation lasts.
