State of the State RI

Guest: Patricia Morgan, former Minority Leader, RI House of Representatives
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
After a very long and difficult process in obtaining public records from former Attorney General Peter Kilmartin regarding the use of the Google drug settlement money, Morgan has recently received the requested documents from current AG Peter Neronha. Of the $230 million in settlement money, the AG Office received $60 million. There seems to have been little or no state oversight of how the money was spent. This money was to be used for public safety purposes; but, Morgan questions how the money was actually used. She points out some areas of concern; but her study is ongoing. She expects to provide an update in the Fall of 2019.
