One of the state's most influential female lawmakers said Tuesday she will not seek re-election.
State Rep. Annette Young, R-Dorchester, said in a press release she wanted to go from being a part-time lawmaker to a full-time grandmother.
Young is vice chairman of the House Ways and Means committee, overseeing the subcommittee that handles jails, courts and other public safety agencies. She is also a key vote counter during House floor debate, prodding fellow Republicans to hold the party line.
Young has been in office since 1991.
