State House, Providence – Today, the House Republican Caucus released its “Minority Report” detailing their success in advocating for issues, policies, and initiatives on behalf of Rhode Island taxpayers during the 2022 Legislative Session. This 2022 Legislative Session Recap is published online and is a detailed listing of successfully sponsored, co-sponsored, or caucus inspired bills and initiatives, along with their outcomes.
Michael Chippendale and Tara Granahan:
"Why at this time are we giving raises to people making 6 figures? Dan McKee is not in touch with day to day life in RI. The General Assembly needs to come back off the campaign trail to address this issue and to properly fund heating assistance for our residents and businesses. This should be our focus."
Today, the Department of Administration conducted a hearing on Governor McKee’s request for pay raises for his cabinet directors, who all currently earn at least $100,000 per year, by as much as double digit percent points. Those pay hikes will take effect unless both chambers of the General Assembly return within 30 days to reject this proposal in special sessions of the respective chambers.
