Department of Business Regulation

The state Ethics Commission on Tuesday found probable cause that Don Lally violated the revolving door provisions of the code of ethics when he accepted a state job less than four months after resigning as a state representative in March 2015.

Commission spokesman Jason Gramitt called the finding a preliminary step, since Lally -- barring a settlement -- will face a hearing with the Ethics Commission.

Rhode Island Licensing Goes Digital

Dec 3, 2013

The state of Rhode Island licenses 69 professions, everything from hairdressers to electricians. Until now, license holders have had to renew by mail or in person. But all that’s changing Tuesday.

The state is rolling out a new e-licensing system Tuesday. It will allow anyone with a professional license to get a new one or renew an old one online.  Paul McGreevy, director of the Department of Business Regulation, says it’s part of the governor’s initiative to make it easier to do business in Rhode Island.
