Do you have the content of these? The official site for the Massachusetts Legislature hasn't been updated to reflect any of these.

There is no content just a brief description and number that I listed. A couple of organizations have inquired about bill numbers or some type of reference numbers. These were taken from the docket book at the link listed below.
