Mattiello: Final RI Budget Coming Next Week

Rhode  Island lawmakers are busy trying to hammer out the new state budget.  House Speaker Nicholas Mattielo says the legislature's revised version of Governor Gina Raimondo's eight-point-six-billion dollar budget will be unveiled next week.  Lawmakers are taking a closer look at several portions of the governor's budget plan, including a new sweeping Rhode Works infrastructure proposal that among other things would begin charging tolls for large commercial truck drivers.  There is also a pension agreement that plans to end a four-year battle between the state and several unions over pension overhauls for state employees.
