On this week's edition of Straight from the Gavel, Senator John J. Tassoni, Jr. (D-Dist. 22, North Smithfield, Smithfield) is interviewed by Capitol TV's Dave Barber about several issues he worked on this past session. Among the topics discussed are public transportation, including his opposition to cuts in RIPTA routes and the importance of transportation services to the elderly; his work on legislation to establish a recovery high school in Rhode Island; the significance of a measure which strengthens the penalties imposed on those who deface historical graves or monuments; and his concerns over National Grid's response to Hurricane Irene.
