Solar Breakers, a subsidiary of BQ Energy, LLC, has signed a 37-year lease with the Navy to build the 75-acre solar farm on what has been described as unused land.

On today’s Open Forum Frank explores the world of comedy from the perspective of a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing to the announced start of truck-only tolls in Rhode Island, expected to begin next week. Kerri Louise, who will perform in a comedy show in Narragansett a week from Saturday, joins us at noon, followed by Chris Maxwell at 12:30. Chris is the executive director of the Rhode Island Trucking Association. We'll talk comedy in the age of Trump, and then about trucking in the age of a crumbling infrastructure and how governments are attempting to finance the repairs. And, of course, we explore whether the national trucking association plans on filing a lawsuit to halt Rhode Island's truck only tolls. The Trucking Association has said this as an important case, fearing if truck only tolls are embraced in Rhode Island, it could spread across the country.

How do you turn around a 60 million deficit a few months ago into a 38 million surplus a couple of weeks before the end of the fiscal year? Is Rhode Island’s economy as good as the incumbent politicians want us to think, or as bad as their opponents are anxious to portray? University of Rhode Island economist Len Lardaro joins Frank for this edition of, The Open Forum, to provide us with some answers and perspective.

Blink your eyes and what you saw before is bound to change – at least when it comes to politics in Rhode Island. Candidates in what is a crowded gubernatorial field continue to jockey for position. Former Secretary of State Matt Brown, who was initially considering a run for governor as an independent, has indicated now that he’ll run as a Democrat, joining Gov. Gina Raimondo, and progressives Paul Roselli and former state Representative Spencer Dickinson. Brown is also a progressive. Dickinson joins Frank on this edition.
