State of the State RI

Guests: Julie Casimiro, Representative District 31
Camille Vella-Wilkinson, Representative District 21
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
The budget impasse leading to a legislative recess was first and foremost on their minds. They are optimistic that the matter will be resolved but unsure when. Concerns about sexual harassment within the R.I. National Guard have yet to be addressed. The Governor’s veto of the “perpetual contracts” bill with a potential override by the general assembly; children dying under DCYF care; domestic violence and gun related matters remain as their outstanding concerns. They noted with satisfaction the bills they sponsored and were passed and those they hope will be passed in the future.
