Rhode Island General Assembly Recesses After Passing Budget Bill
On June 18, both chambers of the General Assembly recessed after passing the current fiscal year supplemental budget.
The bill distributed funding received from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to cover revenue losses for the fiscal year ending on June 30 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lawmakers are expected to return to session this summer to address the budget for the 2021 fiscal year after federal action for additional state relief is determined.
