Chief Justice Margaret Marshall On Her Decision Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage In Mass.
Fifteen years ago this week, Massachusetts became the first state to legalize same-sex marriage. It would be another five years before another state, Connecticut, followed suit, and more than 10 years before change came on the national scale with the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which made marriage equality the law of the land in 2015.

Ahead of the anniversary, Jim Braude was joined by former Chief Justice Margaret Marshall, who wrote the decision legalizing same-sex marriage in Massachusetts.

Transportation In Mass. Is A Mess – Who Will Clean It Up?
Boston is reportedly the most congested city in the country, with commuters spending an average of 164 hours per year sitting in traffic during rush hour, according to analytics company INRIX. Things aren’t any better on the public transportation front, with a recent MassINC poll showing 63 percent of MBTA commuters having been made late for work recently. Overall, it's so bad that more than 50 percent of those with a long commute say they have considered switching jobs to make their daily travels less painful. Will Massachusetts ever garner the funding, the political will, and the right ideas to fix this ongoing nightmare?

Jim Braude was joined by the co-chairs of the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Transportation, Rep. William Straus of Mattapoisett and Sen. Joseph Boncore of Winthrop.
