ON THE AIR: Senator Tarr Discusses Melissa's Bill on WBZ Radio with Dan Rea Tonight

Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr will be joining Les Gosule on Dan Rea’s “Nightside” program on WBZ radio tonight to discuss the current status of Melissa’s Bill.  Named in memory of Les’ 27-year-old daughter who was raped and murdered by a repeat offender in July of 1999, Melissa’s Bill seeks to protect the public by imposing stronger penalties against violent repeat offenders, including the possibility of lifetime imprisonment without parole for chronic offenders.  Les will be appearing in studio with Dan Rea beginning at 9 p.m., and Senator Tarr will be joining them shortly thereafter.  Be sure to tune in to 1030 AM tonight to hear their discussion of this important public safety proposal, or listen online at
