After the mad dash by the state Legislature at last week's end of session deadline, Gov. Charlie Baker was faced with a heaping pile of new bills to sign.

On Thursday, the governor signed 53 pieces of legislation into law, including an opioid bill, an automatic voter registration measure, and a clean energy bill.

We discuss the bills Baker has signed into law so far, and give an update on which bills are still waiting for his approval.
