MassDOT Chief The Mass. Department of Transportation (MassDOT), the recently established super agency, officially took over the state’s transportation infrastructure. The consolidation is part of the Patrick administration’s transportation reform that eliminates the Mass. Turnpike Authority, brings over 4,000 state employees and five overlapping transportation agencies into one organization. Guests: Jeffrey Mullan, Seretary and CEO, Mass. Department of Transportation.
Luggage Fees Most airlines started charging passengers to check their baggage in 2008 when the airline industry was reeling from high fuel costs. The move appears to have prompted more and more people to carry on their baggage to avoid these extra fees. Guests: Dan Rea, WBZ Radio; Kris Frieswick, Freelance Writer.
60 Second Recaps The Website 60second Recap officially launched on September 14, 2009. The site features a series of book-related videos and explainers that aim to make the great works of literature accessible to today's teens.
