New Speaker Needed for Rhode Island House
Today the Rhode Island House of Representatives may seek to elect a new speaker to replace Gordon Fox, who resigned on Saturday. Fox abruptly resigned following a police raid of his home and office by state and federal officials on Friday. No reason for the search has yet been given by authorities or Fox.
Fox said he will remain as a representative in the House but does not intend to seek another term.
