Gina Raimondo on Budget & Economy

 

 


We've made it easier to do business in Rhode Island

We've made it easier to do business in Rhode Island, cutting thousands of pages of regulations and providing 120 loans to small business--more than half of which have gone to women and minority-owned businesses. That small business loan fund didn't even exist when I became governor.

Put line-item veto on the ballot

It is time to pass line item veto. We know this is something the vast majority of Rhode Islanders want. Nearly every other state uses line item veto to reduce waste in government spending and corruption--and to ensure that tax dollars help all citizens, not just those with connections. Let's restore Rhode Islanders' confidence in government and put line item veto on the ballot.

Investing in job training, incentives helped business

The governor, a former venture capitalist, points out that Rhode Island, and the state's manufacturing in particular, was "really hard hit" by the Great Recession of 2008. "We really had to put our shoulder to the grindstone, invest in our talent, invest in job training, provide incentives to make it easier to do business in Rhode Island," Raimondo said. "Because of all that we have seen a pretty remarkable turnaround, including in manufacturing."
