BOSTON (CBS) – The State Retirement Board suspended the pension of former House Speaker Sal DiMasi Thursday.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens reports

DiMasi had been collecting about $5,000 per month from the state.

He was sentenced to eight years in prison last week for accepting kickbacks.

The board will hold a forfeiture hearing later to determine whether DiMasi should lose his pension for life.

He has been ordered to report to prison on November 16.
