Governor vows to ensure state followed rules in giving benefits to bombing suspects

Governor Deval Patrick today said that officials will release as much information about state benefits collected by the alleged marathon bombers as is allowed by law, and vowed his office will make sure the state followed all eligibility rules in granting the aid.

“I understand the public is curious,” said Patrick, according to a transcript of remarks made this morning after the annual fish stocking at Jamaica Pond. “I also understand there are some limits on what can properly be released and within the law, we’ll do what we can.”
