On March 12, Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo will propose her first state budget -- for Fiscal Year 2016.

In a recent Associated Press report, Governor Raimondo said the Ocean State faces a nearly $200 million deficit in fiscal 2016 that could grow to almost $500 million in fiscal 2019 unless the State changes course. The only way to stop the State's decline is to create middle-class jobs, according to Governor Raimondo.

Dr. Joseph Cammarano is an Associate Professor of Political Science at Providence College. He is available for comment on what we can expect to hear from Governor Raimondo's FY 2016 budget proposal on      March 12.
