Former Republican Gubernatorial candidate Ken Block is making a push for line-item veto power for the Governor. He’s launched a website to drive the issue.
On the new website you can send an email to Governor Raimondo, as well as legislative leaders, voicing your support for the issue. Block wants the governor to have the power to veto single items from the state budget. University of Rhode Island Political science professor and commentator Maureen Moakley said the issue is unlikely to gain traction with state lawmakers.
