FY 2009 Supplemental Budget: Senate Finance Chair Drops A Shoe
From the Warwick Beacon:
State Senator Steven Alves (D-West Warwick), who chairs the Senate Finance Committee, said he believes it is 99.9 percent likely that the state will face a supplemental budget of at least $100 million next year.
Question. Why did the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee vote “Aye” on the 2009 budget twice knowing full well it contained a deficit of at least $100m?
