The Massachusetts Senate yesterday passed a bill authorizing cities to allow free overnight parking on streets. The bill, which originated in the House, will now go to the governor for signing and then to the individual city councils.
Cambridge's council will not vote on the bill for at least 60 days since it will take that long for it to get through channels. It will probably be September before the all-night parking goes into effect, even if the council does approve it, Mayor Edward A. Crane '35 stated.
The bill is not mandatory; the individual cities man refuse to okey it, Cambridge, however, wanted to introduce free all-night parking last fall and was prevented from doing so only because of the existing state law forbidding it. This law will now be rescinded by the new bill.
The Cambridge City Council last week approved a measure which might lead to legalizing of all-night parking from April through November.
