Here is the Radio Boston rundown for February 4. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • The House of Representatives is deciding whether to strip newly-seated Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee appointments over controversial statements she has made and supported on social media in the past. We ask Massachusetts Congressman Jim McGovern about the ongoing controversy, and where he stands on other crucial issues facing Congress, including a possible COVID relief bill.
  • Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is in Washington today for his confirmation hearing, hoping to become President Joe Biden's Secretary of Labor. We get the latest from Jim Puzzanghera, Washington Bureau Chief for the Boston Globe.
  • As Mayor Marty Walsh prepared for his DC hearing, he put newly appointed Boston Police Commissioner Dennis White on administrative leave pending an investigation into allegations of domestic violence. Walsh named White to the post just last Thursday. What is going on at the BPD? We take listener calls.
  • The CDC says the Bay State ranks 13th from the bottom of states in vaccine distributions by population. But Connecticut ranks is sixth from the top. Is the Nutmeg State really that much better at rolling this out? What gives?

This program aired on February 4, 2021.
