State House has begun hearings on various legislation

We will monitor those pieces of legislation that will have a negative impact on our membership.  We have already testified at the House Finance Committee in support of Real Jobs and also in support of various programs being presented by CommerRI such as the RI ReBuild program.

  We have also met with the Speaker to review several pieces of legislation that we feel is against the interest of the manufacturing sector. Over the coming weeks, I plan on meeting with the Senate President and the House Finance Chair.  If you have any concerns on specific legislation, please do not hesitate to reach to us.
