BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Mass. names insurance commissioner


BOSTON—Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick today named Superior Court Justice Nonnie S. Burnes as insurance commissioner.

Ms. Burnes, 64, will resign her judgeship, which she has held since 1996, before assuming the post on Feb. 26, according to the governor's statement.

"Judge Burnes is the right choice for the Commonwealth, and will insure that Massachusetts maintains its economic competitive edge by ensuring the insurance products are both affordable and fair for consumers," Housing and Economic Development Secretary Dan O'Connell said in the statement.
