State of the State RI

Guest: Patricia Morgan, Minority Leader-RI House of Representatives
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
RI is facing a huge budget deficit. Leader Morgan believes that some bad laws have to be fixed to remedy some of our budget problems and some new laws have to be created. She offers five major ideas to begin the process of fixing the budget. Create an Office of Inspector General. Remove the tangible personal property tax, which afflicts small businesses. Change disability pension requirements in order to lessen the burden on municipal budgets. Eliminate prevailing wage requirements associated with school infrastructure repair. Establish a line item veto for the governor.
