300 Concerned Members of Business & Labor Community Turn Out at Warwick City Council Airport Litigation Committee Hearing

GPCC continues to advocate for the immediate implementation of the FAA approved improvements at TF Green.

Thursday night, the Chamber joined members of the labor community to testify before the Warwick City Council Sub-Committee on Airport Litigation. Three hundred concerned citizens packed the Council Chambers in support of the approved airport runway expansion. It was an impressive show of support for this important economic development project.

Laurie White, president of the Chamber, in conjunction with representatives from the Labor Community including Greg Mancini from BuildRI, Michael Sabitoni, president of the Rhode Island Building Trades and Paul MacDonald, president of the Providence Central Federation Council of the AFL-CIO, testified to the urgency of the proposed airport improvement projects and the need to begin construction as soon as possible without any further litigation delays.

We wish to thank our business and labor members who attended the hearing. The Chamber will continue to monitor the work of the Airport Litigation Sub-Committee of the Warwick City Council, as this important development project will create much needed jobs and economic benefits to the State of Rhode Island.
