House and Senate lawmakers are voting this afternoon on a $40 billion state budget compromise. The compromise plan comes amid stalled negotiations over changes to the voter-approved recreational marijuana law and as Gov. Charlie Baker called on lawmakers yesterday to get the bills on his desk as soon as possible

"I just want some progress on executing on the job, which means I would hope that sometime soon we'll see a budget and a bill on marijuana," said Baker.

We talk about the gridlock on Beacon Hill and look at Gordon Hayward's move to the Celtics. Plus, we talk about Attorney General Maura Healey's lawsuit against Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
