Federal Government Shutdown Notice

Federal lawmakers failed to pass a new appropriations bill by midnight on January 19, 2018, forcing the federal government to shut down. At this time, Rhode Island state government is continuing normal operations and does not anticipate any immediate disruptions to service. In the event that the shutdown continues into next week, we will make additional information available about the potential impact on state agency operations.

Message from Governor Gina M. Raimondo

We must create conditions that will jumpstart our struggling economy, create jobs, and expand opportunity for all Rhode Islanders. I know we have a high hill to climb to get from where we are to where we need to be, but together we will climb it.
