Bill holds new rules for Rhose Island agencies

Quasi-public entities targeted

PROVIDENCE — Quasi-public agencies in Rhode Island like the Turnpike and Bridge Authority and the Airport Corp. would get new rules on accountability and ethics under legislation passed by state lawmakers and now awaiting action by Governor Lincoln Chafee.

The new rules would also require such agencies and commissions to conduct performance reviews every three years so lawmakers and the public can see how they are carrying out their mission. Lawmakers approved the changes before adjourning for the year last week.
