Rhode Island must improve its economy. Our primary goal should be to build new businesses and create jobs. To address this concern, Gov. Gina Raimondo rightfully sought to invest in Rhode Island’s infrastructure.
Done well, this investment creates the framework for businesses to succeed and grow. While the governor’s RhodeWorks program has some commendable features, the burdensome and inefficient tolls that it seeks to impose will divert trucks around our state, onto back roads, and will increase shipping costs for Rhode Island companies.
