From GoLocalProv by Paul J. Spetrini, GoLocalProv News Editor:
At one point during last night’s State of the State address, Governor Lincoln Chafee delivered a line from his prepared speech, waited for a reaction, chuckled to himself and told the crowded room before him that they could applaud.
They responded with a standing ovation.
It was brief moment of levity but a good microcosm of the night overall as General Assembly members, local and state leaders and political officials across Rhode Island had high praise for the governor and his proposed 2014 fiscal year budget.
