State of the State RI

Guest: Ken Block, Founder of WatchDogRI.org and LineItemVeto.org
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
Through his continuing exercise of his political citizenship, Ken Block is working to make a difference in Rhode Island by supporting legislative action on key issues and systemic changes in how government conducts itself. He founded WatchDogRI.org and LineItemVeto.org in order to focus attention on key issues and to encourage public action. He discusses the need for a line item veto, the wrongheaded truck toll law, the need to restore RI Ethics Commission oversight of legislators, the dysfunctional RI DOT. Ultimately the change that is needed requires significant public action. Block encourages folks to join in this effort.
