No Change In House Leadership

The state House has elected Robert  DeLeo to a sixth term as speaker.  

The vote as the legislature convened  yesterday extends the Winthrop Democrat's reign as the longest serving  speaker in Massachusetts history.  

The Senate also voted to continue  with Karen Spilka of Ashland as president.  

Spilka says priorities for  the session include adequately funding education, possible tax reform  and slowing the rise of prescription drug prices.
