Senate Session Summary - Monday, Sept. 27, 2021
9/27/21 2:39 PM
With three days until the state's COVID-19 emergency paid sick leave program expires, the branches whipped into action Monday to send Gov. Charlie Baker a bill extending the program until April. Baker tried to amend the sick leave program when it was first passed in May, although his edits were tossed aside by the Legislature and he ultimately signed the bill without any vetoes. Baker has 10 days to review bills sent to his desk but he is sometimes pigeonholed by last-minute legislating in the chambers. The House and Senate don't meet again until Thursday, the date the program is set to expire. - Sam Doran
