  • Budget differences still need work in the homestretch

    The General Assembly’s top priority this legislative session – adopting a two-year budget to run state government – entered its final stages late last week, when House and Senate leaders sat down Friday morning to begin looking for common ground that both chambers could support.

  • State Senate passes its version of budget

    Editor’s note: This column from 2009 is being rerun in honor of Nancy Kennedy’s husband, Barry, who turned 65 this week.

    When I first met my husband he drove a totally hot car, a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with burnt orange pinstripes and burnt orange interior – and a manual transmission.
