State House Leader Not Happy With Senate 3-Day Weekend.

BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM) -- A three day weekend for lawmakers on Beacon Hill -- isn't sitting right with State House Speaker Robert DeLeo.

The speaker says he's disappointed at the Senate's decision not to meet during three of the remaining five days of formal sessions.

DeLeo says he had planned with the previous Senate President to have everyone in the body present for the weekend -- so they could put pressure on the committees to complete their reports.

Senator Karen Spilka was sworn in Thursday as the new Senate President. The Senate passed several bills and then adjourned until Monday.
