What’s in the news?
- Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren say they need more information before they decide how they'll vote on the Obama administration's request for limited military action in Syria. Markey says he's concerned about any attack's unintended consequences while Warren says the request is too "open ended."
- All but five of 33 proposed ballot issues have cleared their first hurdle. Attorney General Martha Coakley says the issues meet constitutional requirements. Among those that did not were proposals requiring labels on genetically-modified food and outlawing casino gambling in the state.
- In what the beverage industry calls an informational day, industry reps will spend the day on Beacon Hill pressing a number of sustainability and other issues. The visit comes as environmental activists push a ballot question expanding the state's bottle bill to include non-carbonated beverages.
- A man convicted of killings in Washington state has been returned to Massachusetts to face charges in a 1988 murder. Daniel Tavares was indicted in April in Gayle Botelho's stabbing. Her remains were found more than a decade after she disappeared, in the backyard of a Fall River home where Tavares had lived.
- A third horse has been found in Massachusetts with Eastern equine encephalitis. The latest case has prompted health officials to raise the mosquito threat level to "critical" in Tyngsborough, with nearby communities raised to "moderate" risk.
