Sasse Calls on General Assembly to Audit RI Commerce Corp
Tuesday, June 20, 2017
A recent GoLocalPRov.com review found that under Governor Gina Raimondo, "the agency in charge of building Rhode Island’s economy has spent 65 percent of its contract dollars ($12 million) with out-of-state companies in the last two years.
Nearly $8 million of taxpayer dollars went to consultants as far away as New York, Toronto, London, and Frankfurt under the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation. Even the money spent on porta-johns contracted for Volvo races went to out-of-state interests by an overwhelming margin."
