Sales Tax Reform: More Money In The Pockets Of Rhode Island Families

Rhode Island is losing the competition to retain and attract families who want to make our state their home-of-choice.  Imagine our state as place where families can work hard, earn a respectable living, and support their families. But, too many Rhode Islanders feel left out. They are fed up with the status quo of ever-increased spending on special interest causes, and the perpetually high taxes and red-tape that are driving others out of town. Now is the time to change the status quo. A 3.0% sales tax reform is the antidote to the progressive agenda in the Ocean State.


Rhode Islanders need a credible alternative to the status quo and its destructive progressive ideas. You can help.
