More than a dozen bills championed by state Sen. Barry R. Finegold—ranging from studying the effectiveness of the Massachusetts School Building Authority to student and educator data privacy—will advance to debate in the state legislature.

Finegold said the proposals survived a legislative procedure, known on Beacon Hill as “Joint Rule 10 Day,” a deadline for committees to pursue various proposals.

“I’m looking forward to the work ahead on a wide range of issues from cybersecurity and data privacy to health insurance, access to care and economic development. Every one of these bills touches the lives of my constituents and I’ll be working hard with colleagues to see them passed into law.” said Finegold in a statement.

Finegold represents Andover, Amesbury, Haverhill, Merrimac, North Andover, Tewksbury and Wilmington, and chairs the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies.
