Two bills approved in the State Senate Wednesday could affect President Donald Trump and his associates.

President Trump honored the 2018 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox at a White House ceremony Thursday, lauding the team as a "shining example of excellence" in "an American sporting tradition that goes back many generations."
