Scott Wolf

Providence Business News Editor Mark Murphy joins Rhode Island Public Radio's Dave Fallon for our weekly business segment The Bottom Line.

This week, the two are joined by Scott Wolf, the executive director of Grow Smart RI about "Rebuild RI." That's the new tax credit program created under the Raimondo administration to spur development in the state. Wolf discusses what sorts of projects are covered, as well as key similarities and differences between "Rebuild" and the old historic tax credit program.

When to listen:

Fernand St Germain

Former U.S. Rep. Fernand  "Fred"' St Germain, who rose from modest roots in French-Canadian Woonsocket to become one of the most powerful politicians in Washington, D.C., only to meet defeat in 1988 among allegations of ethical misconduct, has died. He was 86.

St Germain, a Democrat, first elected in 1960 with President John F. Kennedy, was known for paying vigorous attention to constituent services and bringing federal programs, especially housing for the elderly, to Rhode Island.
