BOSTON (State House News Service) — Gov. Charlie Baker whittled the number of bills on his desk down to 33 by signing 10 more pieces of legislation into law Friday.
Among the bills that Baker signed before taking off for the weekend was the conference committee bill (S 3075) meant to help military families that relocate to Massachusetts integrate more easily and to address hazards that service members were exposed to overseas.
While he can sign or send back a bill whenever he would like within his 10-day review period, Baker does not have to act on any of the bills that remain on his desk until Monday at the earliest.
