WBUR's Bianca Vazquez Toness reports that if the measure is approved, it would "mark the most significant overhaul of the state's health care marketplace since former Gov. Mitt Romney signed a law requiring most residents to purchase health insurance."

House and Senate lawmakers will likely vote on the health care cost overhaul tomorrow. That will give them limited time to discuss what will likely be a complicated bill. All legislation has to be wrapped up before the legislative year ends at midnight. And there's more than health care to complete. Like college sophomores during exam time, lawmakers this year have left a mountain of unfinished business until the last minute.
