Chafee's budget

The Governor is proposing an eight-and-a-half-billion-dollar budget for the fiscal year that starts July first.  His proposal includes cutting the corporate tax down to six-percent.  It also freezes state college tuition, includes money for public works projects and adds an additional 38-million-dollars in education aid to cities and towns.  The budget also includes increases in driver’s license and registration renewal fees, and a series of steps to reduce Medicaid spending by more than 40-million-dollars.

 

State Senate President Teresa Paiva Weed from Newport likes that the Governor put in place money for bridge repair and maintenance.
