Gov. Charlie Baker has quite a few matters to consider after the Legislature's last-minute finish to its two-year session.

Bills winning last-minute approval over the weekend include one setting regulations for ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft, another creating new renewable energy goals for the state, as well as a bill to modernize municipal government.

But there are also some high-profile bills that died a quiet death, with lawmakers unable to reach compromises before a July 31 deadline marking the end of formal sessions.

State House News Service managing partner Craig Sandler joined WBUR's All Things Considered to discuss what happened over the weekend.

This segment aired on August 1, 2016.
