Thank you for visiting our site. We invite you to spend a moment or two getting to know our dedicated representatives and the efforts we champion on behalf of Rhode Island taxpayers.
Through hard work and good, common sense public policy, the Rhode Island House Republican Caucus is fully committed to promoting lean, responsive government and advocating for initiatives and policies that improve and grow our business climate. We are committed to the families we serve by supporting investments and initiatives for a quality public school education. We strive to remove the barriers many face in accessing quality health care in the Ocean State. But, our number one goal is to work tirelessly to ease the tax burden on hardworking Rhode Islanders and local businesses.
We are your partners in addressing government concerns and in accessing state and local government programs. We are at your service. We are your Rhode Island House Republican Representatives.
Representative Michael Chippendale expresses RI House GOP outrage over the lack of engagement by the General Assembly with Tara Granahan. Since April, 6 months ago, House Republicans have been calling for their colleagues to perform their elected duties in providing oversight to the Governor's Executive Order mandates during the pandemic. From the exorbitant fatalities in our nursing homes; to failing to address our school's ability to host students -- furthering more learning loss via remote education; to negating their role as responsible fiscal stewards in distributing the federal COVID relief monies for their designated purpose; and in tackling our massive budget deficit; the leadership and rank and file, has let the residents of Rhode Island down.
In 1636, Roger Williams, founder of Rhode Island, established the first working model of Democracy after being banished from Massachusetts for his “extreme views” concerning freedom of speech and religion. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams publicly acknowledged Williams as the originator of these concepts, along with the freedom of public assembly, in the First Amendment in the United States Constitution. Today, Rhode Island House Republicans uphold the liberties designed by our Founders and preserved in our Constitution, and are the primary legislative body promoting lean government, fighting for lower taxes, and advocating for initiatives and policies that improve the economy and in turn, the lives of Rhode Islanders. As members of a part-time assembly, we are small business owners, retired educators, community activists, lawyers, farmers, military service veterans, volunteers, former local officials, retired social workers, coaches, musicians, churchgoers and board directors -- bringing these community engagement and professional experiences to our work, on your behalf, at the Rhode Island State House.
