MCAS, legislative audit ballot questions advance toward November ballot

Ballot questions nixing the MCAS as a high school graduation requirement and granting the state auditor the ability to open up the books of the Legislature advanced towards the November ballot Wednesday.

Secretary of State William Galvin certified that the two questions, and five others, had enough signatures from Massachusetts voters to clear the 74,574 threshold and move on to the Legislature, which now has the option to act on each proposal.
