Butler Pushes For Passage Of Economic Development Transparency Bills

Statement from Assemblyman Marc W. Butler (R,C,I,Ref-Newport)
June 13, 2018

I stand with my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to call for passage of accountability measures in our economic development programs. I was one of the early sponsors of legislation which would follow every dollar of large lump-sum spending, track conflicts of interest and hold accountable those who game the system to funnel economic development funds into their pockets. Both parties in the Legislature support transparency in economic development funding; we need the governor to get on board and work with us on this.
