State House - Images From the Hearing on H7950

Monique Chartier


Committee hearing in full swing, two minutes before they cleared the room of us standees. That's Dr. Nick Tsongas in the witness chair and on the screen cheerfully admitting that it is "undeniable that this is redistribution of income".


One of the overflow areas, including a t.v. with live feed from the hearing room. These were appreciated. It was less appreciated that the DOT parking lot across the street, normally opened to Statehouse visitors after 4:00 pm, was left closed this evening.


A concerned taxpayer from East Providence objects to the removal by Capitol Police of signs she had posted near the hearing room.


One of the offending signs.
