A state budget agreement has been reached on Beacon Hill, one week into the new fiscal year in Massachusetts.  Votes are scheduled this afternoon in the House and Senate on a $38.1 billion budget for fiscal year 2016.  

Governor Charlie Baker will have 10 days to act on the budget. He can sign it, or veto all or parts of the budget.

State Representative Stephen Kulik of Worthington is part of the six-member conference committee that produced the final budget deal Tuesday night.  He spoke this morning with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
