State of the State RI

Guests: Joseph Almeida, (D) Candidate for House 12 rep-almeida@rilegislature.gov
Luis Vargas, (I) Candidate for House 12 electluisvargas.com
Host: John Carlevale Time: 30 minutes
Long term incumbents are being challenged by both “progressive” and “conservative” candidates, who have a similar message: what has been done for many years has not worked. Many old or unsettled issues remain and the public is demanding resolution. This is a feisty discussion of these issues, which include government reform measures like term limits, line item veto and restoring RI Ethics Commission oversight of legislators. Truck tolls; Charter Schools; legislative grants and community service grants demand their share of this discussion as well.
