House Quickly Approves Budget

The Rhode Island Senate is expected to vote today on the eight-point-seven-billion-dollar budget bill passed by the House yesterday.  The House voted 75 to zero to approve the budget, which provides some tax cuts and increases education spending.  Lawmakers voted to keep the state health insurance exchange HealthSource RI under state control, and appropriated over two-million-dollars to help the exchange.  In addition, the House approved the proposed pension lawsuit settlement without any debate.
