Gov. Charlie Baker commended state lawmakers today for passing a "grand bargain" on a host of economic issues, in an attempt to keep three proposed questions off the ballot in November.

Baker wouldn't clearly say whether or not he'd sign the bill that is now on his desk. The bill would raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, establish paid family and medical leave, and allow for a sales tax holiday.
