Guests: Rep. Julie Casimiro (D) House 31, jcasihome@cox.net
Rep. Camille Vella-Wilkinson (D), House 21, vellawilkinson@gmail.com
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
These two new legislators share their first impressions. Both having been labeled in the media as progressive democrats; they first and foremost address what seems to be a mischaracterization of their political philosophy. The discussion continues as they state their position on such matters as needed school infrastructure repair; increasing the minimum wage; elimination of the car tax; free college tuition; anticipated sales tax revenues from Amazon; the cost of job creation, RI as a sanctuary state; and specific legislation they intend to sponsor.
