.Nearly 130 years after abolitionist, orator and newspaper publisher Frederick Douglass addressed state lawmakers, the Senate plans to unveil a bust in the branch's chamber honoring his legacy during a ceremony next week. An empty pedestal meant for the Douglass bust is currently sitting inside the recently renovated chamber, where Senate President Karen Spilka said she intentionally left two alcoves vacant in her quest to enhance the diverse representation of historical figures in the State House. The other empty alcove will eventually be filled with a bust of a woman, and Spilka has previously floated the idea of selecting Abigail Adams

Thirteen months into the two-year session, the Legislature has a little to show for its labor in terms of new laws, but most of the big ones still need to be written. This week's biennial bill-reporting deadline theoretically could have set the table for a flurry of action, but this Legislature doesn't work like that. Sponsors of bills that merited favorable committee recommendations have something to feel good about, but no assurance that their proposals will ever surface for votes in either branch. The main agenda in this Legislature remains closely guarded by House Speaker Ron Mariano of Quincy and Senate President Karen Spilka of Ashland, along with a few of their top deputies. They'll unveil major bills when they're ready and history shows that when it comes to making laws they like to take a long time and bargain with each other over final details through late July. Major overhauls of gun laws approved in each branch still await assignment to a conference committee for possible resolution. Wage and salary transparency bills that easily cleared each branch last year have disappeared into the conference abyss since then. An annual road and bridge funding bill could give the House and Senate a reason to bear down in the early part of this year, but Democrats have a habit of waiting until well into the construction season to wrap that one up, as well as many others. Most of the major spending, borrowing and policy bills that top Democrats are planning to push forward this session remain in committees. Top Democrats typically signal when these big moving pieces are ready to come out of committee and surface for votes by holding press conferences or briefings and outlining major proposals.

When the week begins Monday, MBTA officials will hold a press conference to go in-depth on their proposal to launch a new reduced-price fare option for riders with low incomes. Rooftop solar power potential will be the focus in an Environment Massachusetts report due out Tuesday. The Public Health Council is back in action Wednesday, and committees of the Health Policy Commission meet Thursday. And on Friday, MassHealth officials consider emergency regulations for day habilitation center services.
