The Rhode Island Senate has unanimously passed a bill that would require more transparency from the commission that oversees what gets built on land freed up when Interstate 195 was moved.

The bill passed Wednesday was introduced by Senate President Dominick Ruggerio. It would require the I-195 Commission to hold more of its meetings in public. Meetings that aren't open would have to be audio-recorded.

Ruggerio, a North Providence Democrat, sponsored legislation that created the commission in 2011. But he has said he's been disappointed by the secrecy of some of its decision-making. Among his concerns has been the commission's handling of a proposed residential skyscraper complex.

The relocation of a portion of I-195 opened up land for development just south of downtown Providence.
