General Assembly Opening Session In Renovated Chambers

Rhode Island's General Assembly is set to open its 2020 session tomorrow. Both legislative bodies will meet in chambers that have been renovated, including with paint colors and other details that have restored the way they were originally designed when the building was constructed at the dawn of the 20th century, according to a press release from the State House. The sound systems of both chambers have also been improved with new speakers and microphones, and Rhode Island is said to have become the first state capitol to have both its chambers and public galleries equipped with permanent large-area hearing loops for people with hearing aids and cochlear implants.
