RI Scofflaw Enforcement Measure Becomes Law without Governor Raimondo’s Signature

Providence Journal asks, “Has anyone seen Governor Raimondo’s pen? For the second consecutive year, Raimondo allowed more than half the bills sent to her desk by the General Assembly this past session to become law without her signature.” Those new laws include “toll evasion bills [Public Laws 16-381 and 16-398] . . . requested by the quasi-state Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority. They increased penalties for toll scofflaws and authorized the state Division of Motor Vehicles to freeze vehicle registrations.”
