Battle heats up on RI budget

Governor Carcieri continues a media offensive related to the budget, having appeared on John DePetro's show this morning. Meanwhile, the liberal Campaign for Rhode Island's Priorities plans today to unveil its Economic Growth & Fairness Act, "a comprehensive plan to provide property tax rebates while raising needed revenue for shared priorities."

The event will be at 3:30 pm, in Room 313 at the State House.

Karen Malcolm, Executive Director of Ocean State Action and the campaign's coordinator states:


"The Campaign will outline its comprehensive stimulus plan to get Rhode Island back on track. Long-term, economically viable solutions are possible that would reduce our over-reliance on the property tax without sacrificing voter's top priorities of health care, education, and jobs. Economists agree that the best way to stimulate the economy is to put money in the pockets of middle-income earners and into the pockets of those striving to become middle-income earners. This plan does just that."


Representative Art Handy (Cranston) and Senator Paul Moura (E. Providence), sponsors of the act in the General Assembly, will be hand to answer questions.
