Public Hearing on “Rhode Island Innovates: A Competitive Strategy for the Ocean State”

March 15, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 6:30 pm

What: Public Hearing on “Rhode Island Innovates: A Competitive Strategy for the Ocean State” (The Brookings Report Agenda)
Where: Senate Finance Hearing Room 313 – RI State House
When: Tuesday, March 15 2:30 pm

Contrary to what Speaker Mattiello said last year, RhodeMap RI was NOT “shelved.” It is now called Rhode Island Rising and incorporates the Brookings Report as RI’s Economic Development Plan.

This week you have another opportunity to have your voice heard at the State House as it relates to the state’s so-called Economic Development Plan.

On Tuesday, join other individuals fighting daily for our freedom in RI. Grab your like-minded friends, who still believe that we should fight against the sham plan, RhodeMap RI (aka RI Rising) and testify in the Senate Finance committee at 2:30 and the House Finance committee at the rise (about 4:30).

State House Hearings:

Senate Finance Hearing – RhodeMap RI (RI’s purported Economic Development Plan)

Tuesday, March 15
2:30 pm  Room 313

Stefan Pryor (Commerce Secretary) and Mark Muro (Brookings Institute) will present “RI Innovates: A Competitive Strategy for the Ocean State”.  This will be the specifics of the RhodeMap RI plan.  Public Testimony will be allowed.  This hearing serves to satisfy the statutory requirement for a public hearing as stipulated in 42-64.17-1.


House Finance Hearing – RhodeMap RI

Tuesday, March 15
At the rise (about 4:30) Room 35

Presumably, this hearing will duplicate the earlier Senate hearing, giving you an opportunity to testify in front of the House committee.
