At the top of the list of changes is a request for the entire EDC board to resign, as well as the launching of a national search for a new EDC executive director.

In addition, the governor is disbanding the Rhode Island Economic Policy Council under the assumption that it created a less-than-focused economic development approach.

It may take a while for all the new pieces to come into place, but do you think that the new approach will make a difference in the state’s economic performance?
