EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — 12 News political analyst Joe Fleming joined 12 News in studio Wednesday morning for a recap of Gov. Dan McKee’s State of the State address.
McKee made various proposals Tuesday night, but Fleming warns that McKee’s plans are not a done deal.
“The big thing he has to do is get it through the General Assembly (GA). A lot of the issues he’s talking about are things the GA likes, for example, housing. Speaker Shekarchi is a very big housing proponent, so it’s going to be easy to get it through. The question is the details in that program is what they’re going to have to work on and compromise and get together on,” Fleming explained.
He also pointed out that the issues McKee focused on are issues governors have addressed for years: jobs, small business, education, and he proposed investing $250 million in more affordable housing..
