The attorney general made draft regulations for daily fantasy sports companies like DraftKings that will be filed on Friday. On Wednesday, the AG's office released a study on the future energy needs of the state, indicating that the proposed Kinder Morgan natural gas pipeline — which would run through parts of Franklin County — is not in the best interests of energy consumers in the state. Last Friday, AG Healey opposed a lawsuit to lift the cap on charter schools.
