I know the bill is going to be submitted yet again this year, and yet again sent to the judiciary committees in the House and Senate. So this time I think we should start now in contacting those on the committees to let them know that Rhode Island shouldn’t be the laughingstock of New England. Because the legislature makes it difficult to figure out who is on what committee I thought I’d do the work for them.
Without further comment, here’s the csv file if you’d like to suck it into a database. Multiple city representation is escaped out with a forward slash ‘/’. Some interesting things to do would be which cities dominate which committee. For example, Providence has 3 senators on the committee, but only one in the house committe, Edith Ajello. She and Amy Rice are like the dynamic duo at the hearings, while rice is the attack dog that gets sent to deal with religious idots, Ajello is good for the more profound moments.
