This week, a state commission in Massachusetts will meet to set the official health care cost benchmark. This system was put into place a number of years ago to keep a close watch on rising health care costs. For more, we checked in with State House News Service reporter Matt Murphy, as we do most Mondays.
Also this week:
- The legislature’s transportation committee takes up road construction funds.
- Governor Charlie Baker’s $40.5 billion state budget proposal gets its first public hearing on Thursday.
