State of the State RI

Guest: Leonidas Raptakis, RI Senator, District 33
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
Senator Raptakis is among a group of legislators from both chambers of the RI general assembly who believe that some bills recently passes and some pending will hurt Rhode Island businesses and the economy. The legislation discussed include mandatory sick pay; a single-payer healthcare system; minimum wage, truck tolls; free tuition for DACA-Dreamers residing in RI; taking of State House property to build a bus terminal; failure to pass a child protection law for children left in cars; and the yet to be decided matter of public funding of a new PawSox stadium.
