State of the State RI

Guest: Blake Filippi (R) Minority Leader, RI House of Representatives, House 36, blake36.com/
Hosts: John Carlevale Time: 30 minutes
Filippi discusses his role as minority leader and the major concerns of the minority caucus. He asserts these concerns: “An honest and strong business climate, rooted in a level playing field, lower taxes, open and clean government, local control of planning decisions, the protection of individual liberty, and the truth that our environment is both a social and economic treasure.” The current administration’s approach to economic development is in stark contrast to the minority view, which is “end corporate welfare, enact tax and regulatory reforms that everyone can take advantage of.” Filippi comments on recent House rule changes; the need for an inspector general and a line-item veto for the governor.
