Guest: Lou Raptakis, RI Senator, sen-raptakis@rilin.state.ri.us
Host: Barry Schiller Time: 30 minutes
This is the FIFTH of a series of retrospective looks at the 2013 legislative session with members and non-members of the General Assembly. Senator Lou Raptakis is a member of the legislature and acknowledges that a number of bills have been passed to boost the economy and improve the business climate. However, he underscores that fact that the legislature has failed to address the major issues, which burden business and depress economic growth, namely high taxes, especially sales tax and property tax, excessive regulations, fees and penalties. Raptakis also talks about bills which should have been passed but were not.
