Transpo committee takes on Greenway, Commuter Rail – Nuciforo spending spree? – Meet some House candidates.

BY POPULAR DEMAND: Why has Andrea Nuciforo, candidate for federal office, been spending from his state campaign account? And how’s he doing in his congressional primary race? That good, huh? (Eagle)

A TO B: The Herald covers the bases today on what’s going down in the Transportation Committee. Namely: a bill to continue public funding for the Greenway and another to require refunds for late Commuter rail trains. There’s also a proposal to require insurance for private road tunnels used by the public. (AP)
