The state is going to "free the ramp" -- for the moment, at least. The T will run a pilot this summer in which Silver Line buses will use the state police ramp to "jump the line" and avoid traffic leading up to the Ted Williams Tunnel during afternoon rush hour.
It only took Charlie Baker six years to decide that a bus can use a ramp so quit complaining about how the state has no transportation strategy #mapoli

#Weymouth compressor station drama continues: MassDEP's hearing officer Rothchild threatens DEP with sanctions, demands more info on newly disclosed air pollution data in Fore River Basin. My Q: When did the DEP become *aware* this data exists? https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/6018990-Order-to-Show-Cause-Algonquin-Gas-Transmission.html …

In full page-ad in the Boston Globe, e-cig maker Juul declares “it’s time” to raise the e-cig and tobacco purchase age to 21. Massachusetts lawmakers did exactly that one year ago.
Seems like something Juul employee Martha Coakley should have caught for them. #mapoli
With the very core of our democracy at stake, we're proud to join Team @EdMarkey once again to keep up the fight for a Green New Deal, a woman's right to choose, worker's rights, net neutrality, protecting the ACA, immigrants rights, and ending the opioid epidemic. #mapoli https://twitter.com/StephMurr_Jour/status/1130541519633571841 …
Join the Fort River 6th grade students to pass the Bill (HD.2968 and SD.1495) to change the current Massachusetts State Flag, with a flag that represents Native Americans in a less violent and more welcoming way. Watch and share on social media then make your own video!
👀 LOOK at this extraordinary advocacy from #Amherst 6th graders. We have to remember the @FortRiverSchool students were the driving force behind the change to the Turnpike sign. Now, they're leading the way to change the Commonwealth's flag! #mapoli

Even with all of this sanctions talk, the fact still remains that DEP has no regulations saying they have to give a 💩 about existing AQ when considering permits for more polluting facilities #mapoli @wgbhnews

Reminiscent of a @BillKristol pie in the face for fomenting "pre-emptive war" an illegal US Iraq invasion. Bill should apologize to the soldiers who were killed there and their families and collateral damage.
