    A spokesman for Republican Gov. Charlie Baker says the governor plans to formally authorize a sales tax holiday for the upcoming weekend.

    An economic development bill approved by lawmakers in the final moments of the formal legislative session last week includes a provision waiving the 6.25 percent sales tax on most store items this Saturday and Sunday.

    Baker expressed support for the bill but has yet to sign it. Spokesman Brendan Moss indicated Thursday that Baker does plan to sign the provision authorizing the sales tax holiday before Saturday.

    It was unclear how the governor planned to act on the rest of the $1 billion economic development package.
