The Week Ahead

The Senate dives back into its formal session agenda on Thursday, with plans to take on bills overhauling sex education and student nutrition and allowing a new form of gender identification on birth records. Meantime, House leaders have plans to get a firsthand look at the offshore wind sector that they are keen on developing in Massachusetts, with plans to check out an existing wind installation off the coast of Rhode Island. The week ahead brings elections in Lawrence, Holyoke, North Adams and Newburyport, where voters this year are choosing new mayors, and in Lowell, which is holding its first elections under the watchful eye of the U.S. Justice Department. Preliminary elections are also scheduled Tuesday in Attleboro, Beverly, Chicopee, Everett, Fall River and Taunton.
