Description

What if Rhode Islanders really had a say? In this video, Justin Katz, Research Director for the Rhode Island Center for Freedom & Prosperity wonders what would happen if the people of the Ocean State had a say in the budgeting process. For the third year in a row, a budget that he submitted for the financial town referendum to set Tiverton’s upcoming budget won a strong majority of votes. That makes three years with tax increases under 1%. With the General Assembly budget voted on by a set of insiders in the dead of night, he wonders whether there are any lessons for the state from his local activities.
