Rep. Daniel P. Reilly has written to Governor Gina Raimondo seeking answers to several unanswered questions regarding the Governor’s RhodeWorks infrastructure repair plan.
“Although our roads and bridges are terrible and in need of drastic repair, there are still far too many questions relating to the funding and the administering of the Governor’s RhodeWorks plan and I cannot blindly put my constituents and the taxpayers of Rhode Island on the hook for almost a billion dollars without more concrete details,” said Representative Reilly (R-Dist. 72, Portsmouth, Middletown). “Transparency and reviewable details of the Governor’s plan have to be made available to the legislature and the people of Rhode Islandbefore any type of borrowing plan can be considered. I hope to hear back from the Governor and her staff soon so we can begin a productive dialogue to improve our state’s crumbling infrastructure in the most cost-effective manner for the people of Rhode Island,” added Representative Reilly.
Representative Reilly sent the attached (below) letter to Governor Raimondo on Friday, Dec. 18 and is awaiting a response from the Governor.
