State of the State RI

Guest: Patricia Morgan, State Representative, District 26, Twitter @repmorgan
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
The Republican Policy Group (RPG) chaired by Representative Morgan has developed a plan for needed bridge repairs which requires no borrowing and no tolling. It is offered as a common sense alternative to Governor Raimondo’s Rhode Works plan, which requires borrowing and tolling with an overall cost of 1.1 billion dollars above and beyond the existing budget. Morgan states that the RPG has studied the existing budget and has identified money already in the budget, which could be used if the legislature does its work and prioritizes how taxpayer money is best utilized. The money earmarked by the plan does not come from social programs or vital services to citizens.
