BOSTON (AP) The state’s new transportation secretary is acknowledging that he may have to sit out some major decisions because of the financial ties between his former law firm and the agencies he now oversees.

The Boston Globe reported Jan. 22 that while Secretary James Aloisi Jr. was a partner at Goulston & Storrs, the firm made $2.8 million from the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority and $1.6 million from the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority over the past five years.

A spokesman for Gov. Deval Patrick said the administration is confident that Aloisi will be able to steer a massive overhaul of the state’s transportation system.

Aloisi was appointed about a month ago. A spokesman for the Executive Office of Transportation said Aloisi has divested from the law firm.
