This is the Radio Boston rundown for July 26. Tiziana Dearing is our host:

  • With just five days left in the legislative session, State Senate President Karen Spilka joins us to give us an update on where the Massachusetts Legislature stands on key issues, from abortion protections to child care to sports betting.
  • State Rep. William Straus, chairperson of the joint committee on transportation; Stacy Thompson, executive director of the LiveableStreets Alliance; and Jarred Johnson, executive director of TransitMatters, join us to make sense of how recent events might affect the agency and riders' experience moving forward.
  • Advocates are calling for minor league baseball players to be paid a living wage. We discuss it with Harry Marino, executive director of Advocates for Minor Leaguers. Then, we check in with Boston Globe sports reporter Alex Speier on minor league pay, as well as David Ortiz's induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

This program aired on July 26, 2022.
