An Incumbent State Senator, on the Chafee Promise that the General Assembly Will Pass His Tax Increase

Carroll Andrew Morse

Responding via the comments section to the public assurance put forth by independent candidate Lincoln Chafee during Friday night's WJAR-TV (NBC 10) gubernatioral debate, that the state legislature will go along with his proposal to extend the Rhode Island sales tax to items currently not taxed...

If the governor is leading the way on a tax increase...the General Assembly is going to go along. That's the governor's leadership. That's his plan and they can go along with it. That's going to happen.
...District 32 State Senator David Bates (Barrington/Bristol), who is running for reelection, offers the following response...
There is no way in hell that I would support Chafee's tax increase.

Across the Gulf region, from Texas to Florida, over 280,000 customers are still without power, with 100,000 without power in Little Rock, Ark. alone. The punishing winds mangled Mobile's graceful ante-bellum homes, and today, dazed residents are picking through debris while rescue crews search for people trapped during the rubble. We've got tons of damage, we've got people hurt, one Mobile resident told ABC News. We've had homes that are 90 percent destroyed. In the Houston area a tree fell onto a pickup truck, killing the driver, ABC affiliate WTRK reported. In Louisiana, a 53-year-old man died as soon as a tree fell on his house, and a 28-year-old woman was killed in a crash on your snowy highway near Fairview, Okla., according towards the Associated Press.
