On Tuesday, March 2, Rhode Island will hold a special election that could potentially green-light $400 million in state bonding - borrowed money that is to be paid back over a period of time, with interest, similar to a mortgage.
The ballot is split into seven questions, each dedicated to providing financial assistance to various sectors that advocates say are crucial to bolstering the state's economy and supporting its emergence and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
