Painful Glimpses of the Rhode Island Way
There was an air of exasperation as Monique and Matt Allen discussed tax breaks for political supporters and threats from teachers. On a separate issue, hope remains that the General Assembly will pass E-Verify. Stream by clicking here, or download it.
E-verify will not make it through the Senate.
It is “inexplicably” being scheduled for hearing before the Judiciary instead of Labor.
Why?Because Paiva-Weed knows she can’t any longer just bury it,so she wants to make damn sure it gets voted down in committee.That won’t happen in Labor.
Judiciary has a different makeup this session-apparentlt Raptakis and Blais,who would be good bets to vote for E-verify have been replaced.
Goodwin and a new Senator,Erin Lynch are on the panel,along with RHODA PERRY,CHARLES LEVESQUE,AND HAROLD METTS.
Do the math.
