(NECN) - A bill to repeal an unpopular new technology tax is headed to the governor's office after the Massachusetts senators unanimously voted to abolish it Thursday.
     
The Senate vote comes after the Massachusetts House approved a repeal earlier this week.
     
Governor Deval Patrick has said he's open to repealing the tax, but he says he's waiting to see what lawmakers do to replace the lost revenue.
     
Patrick is expected to levy his decision sometime this week.
