    Massachusetts Senate Approves $42.7B State Budget Plan

    The Massachusetts Senate has wrapped up debate on a proposed $42.7 billion annual state budget.

    The 40-member chamber worked its way through the last of the amendments to the spending plan late Thursday.

    The budget must be reconciled with a version passed earlier by the House before it can be sent to Gov. Charlie Baker, who will have ten days to issue vetoes.

    The task of coming up with a final version of the budget will fall on a six-member committee made up of three House members and three Senate members.
