A new analysis of labor data shows Rhode Island had a much stronger 3rd quarter than initially reported.
The state Department of labor and Training says there were 4900 more jobs during July, August and September of last year than previously estimated.
The number of Rhode Island-based jobs stood at 464,000, up 4900 from the official September 2012 estimate. The new estimate is basesd on the analysis of tax data from 32,000 businesses. The earlier estimate was based on a survey of businesses.
(PROVIDENCE, RI) Lobbyists in the state of Rhode Island have two reports due Tuesday. Lobbyists who represented clients before the General Assembly last year are expected to file both a report for last December and for the entire year of 2012.
The information contained in these reports makes up part of what is found on the website of Secretary of State Ralph Mollis. The annual report is required whenever a state official is given anything worth more than $250 by a lobbyist.
