Do you agree with House Speaker Gordon D. Fox that it is time to dismantle the R.I. Economic Development Corporation?

Posted 5/6/13

House Speaker Gordon D. Fox is backing a package of economic-policy bills that would include replacing the R.I. Economic Development Corp. with a more-limited R.I. Commerce Corporation controlled by a new commerce secretary. A Senate plan seeks a rebranded EDC but would not form a new secretariat.

Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee so far has resisted calls to dismantle the agency, instead focusing on in-house changes he says have the EDC on the right track.

So what do you think?
