Somerville and Medford residents waiting to swipe their CharlieCards and ride the Green Line must now wait even longer. State officials disclosed Friday that completion of the project — discussed for decades, put off by a succession of administrations, and planned in earnest for the past five years — will be delayed again, until at least October 2015. Expensive, complex projects get delayed all the time, and this one will run through the state’s most densely populated city (Somerville) and cost an estimated $954 million, 50 percent more than the state predicted just a few years ago. But this delay means more ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Do state governments sponsor your H1B Visa for employment? - Yahoo ...
H1B visas are for non-immigrants not legal residents. However, state agencies can hire non-immigrants on H1B visas if they so choose. Asker's Rating: Asker's Comment: Thanks.
