Gov. Gina Raimondo’s proposed budget devotes about 1.1 percent of all state spending to the state’s two major environmental agencies: the Department of Environmental Management and the Coastal Resources Management Council. The DEM got a small bump from the governor’s last budget, while the CRMC held steady. We break down the numbers.

The Department of Environmental Management will host Rhode Island Agriculture Day at the State House today with a number of activities, including the announcement of the 17 grant recipients of the Local Agriculture and Seafood Act.
