In the News: sales tax, juvenile court

State Senate OKs tax holiday for Aug. 10-11

The state Senate voted today to authorize a sales tax holiday for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 10 and 11.
The sale tax holiday is estimated to cost the government $20 million. So while the savings may get distributed to anyone who buys a key item this weekend, those same folks shouldn't complain if one of their pet projects doesn't get funded.

Senate agrees to increase age of juvenile court jurisdiction

The Massachusetts Senate Tuesday passed legislation that increased the age of juvenile court jurisdiction from 17 years old to 18 years old, according to a press release from state Sen. Karen Spilka’s office.

Both of these measure require Gov Patrick's approval
