Painful Glimpses of the Rhode Island Way

Justin Katz

There was an air of exasperation as Monique and Matt Allen discussed tax breaks for political supporters and threats from teachers. On a separate issue, hope remains that the General Assembly will pass E-Verify. Stream by clicking here, or download it.

E-verify will not make it through the Senate.
It is "inexplicably" being scheduled for hearing before the Judiciary instead of Labor.
Why?Because Paiva-Weed knows she can't any longer just bury it,so she wants to make damn sure it gets voted down in committee.That won't happen in Labor.
Judiciary has a different makeup this session-apparentlt Raptakis and Blais,who would be good bets to vote for E-verify have been replaced.
Goodwin and a new Senator,Erin Lynch are on the panel,along with RHODA PERRY,CHARLES LEVESQUE,AND HAROLD METTS.
Do the math.
