(NECN) – Jim Klocke of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce joined NECN to talk about the big stories this week.

Klocke began by talking about how the Massachusetts Health Connector extended the deadline to sign up for insurance.

“I think if it isn’t long enough, they’ll probably ask for another extension and get it. There’s a history of extensions with national healthcare reform,” Klocke explained.

In addition, Klocke discussed the debate to raise the cap on charter schools.

“There has been an issue about reimbursement to public schools who lose students to charter schools. The state provides that reimbursement,” explained Klocke. “The question is has it been fully funded in the last two years? It is an issue that should be resolvable. We should get over that hurdle so we can expand charter schools.”

Lastly, Klocke talked about raising the minimum wage in Massachusetts.
