Gina Raimondo on Homeland Security

 

 


Close deficit, boost budget of RI Veterans Home

Raimondo has announced plans to bolster the Rhode Island Veterans Home in her tax and spending plan for this fiscal year. The plan would close the $2 million deficit in fiscal year 2020 and increase funding next year, WPRI-TV reported. Officials say the proposal will increase revenue by about $880,000 and generate general revenue savings of the same amount.

At least 3% of contracts to go to veteran-owned companies

Raimondo has told veterans she's redoubling the state's efforts to help them. Veterans will now be given a preference when state contracts are awarded. The state gives a similar benefit to women-owned and minority-owned businesses. The bill sets a goal that at least 3% of the total value of all state contracts available to businesses in each fiscal year be awarded to veteran-owned companies.

Honor and support our veteran population, including housing

Gina will work every day to ensure that all Rhode Islanders are treated fairly and with the respect they deserve. She will fight for policies that give working families the support they need to thrive.
