WOONSOCKET â€” Members of the Budget Commission will meet privately with city lawmakers at the Statehouse today to discuss the commissionâ€™s request for enabling legislation to issue a supplemental tax bill.
Chairman William Sequino said the commission wants lawmakers to know the importance of acting quickly to approve a $2.5 million supplemental tax bill, but he is open to suggestions on how the money should be raised.
â€śAs a body I would say yes to both questions,â€ť Sequino said via e-mail. â€śWe are open to suggestions and we would like speedy passage.â€ť
