This is the Radio Boston rundown for July 14. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • WBUR's Deborah Becker joins us to talk about the city's new police commissioner and the troubled department he will oversee. Then, Larry Ellison, former president of the Massachusetts Association of Minority Law Enforcement Officers, who grew up in the same Boston neighborhood as the new commissioner, reacts to the announcement.
  • The Legislature is considering a tax relief package that would potentially send out $250 and $500 checks to individuals or couples, respectively, that fall into the qualifying income bracket. But the proposal has generated a mix of support and criticism. We'll break it all down and discuss what additional steps the Legislature could take before the end of the session this month.
  • A class at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design aims to make Boston as well known for innovative arts as it is for bioscience and tech. We talk with an artist who completed the program and the program's instructor.

This program aired on July 14, 2022.
