This is the Sept. 6 rundown for Radio Boston. Tiziana Dearing is our host:
- It's primary election day in Massachusetts. We check in with WBUR reporter Walter Wuthmann, who is braving the rain at the polls.
- We speak with meteorologist Danielle Noyes about whether this week's rainfall will affect the state's current drought. And we check in with Phil Guerin, Worcester's assistant commissioner for water and sewer, about the city's water restrictions and its message to residents to reduce water usage.
- In 2012, the state created the Health Policy Commission to help lower healthcare spending in the commonwealth. Did it work? Officials say there's mixed results. Ten years later, we take stock of what more can be done.
- Local author Michael Tougias joins us to discuss his forthcoming book, which explores the sinking of the tall ship, Bounty, during Superstorm Sandy in October 2012.
