Support Grows For Change In State Budget Crafting

Most state senators are supporting a proposal to change how the budget is enacted in Rhode Island. Democratic Sen. Ryan William Pearson introduced a bill to provide for a budget reconciliation process between the House and Senate. Currently, the House adopts a budget and sends it to the Senate. Any changes by the Senate go back to the full House for consideration. There isn't a conference committee to work out differences. Pearson wants each chamber to produce a budget.
