A cloud of controversy surrounds Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray, who faces accusations of violating state law by accepting political donations from former Chelsea housing director, Michael McLaughlin.

Meanwhile, Governor Deval Patrick’s $34.8 billion budget proposal for the 2014 fiscal year has some questioning whether residents will be willing to pay for what the Governor calls a “21st century Massachusetts.”

Plus, the Rhode Island House of Representatives overwhelmingly approves a bill to legalize same-sex marriage, but the Senate vote remains an unscheduled toss-up.

We discuss these stories and more in our Week in Review.
