    Rhode Island Budget Pass House
    Rhode Island budget passed the house by huge margin. Within the budget bill is Internet tax. Similar to NY version except the annual threshold is $5,000 in sales RI affs to RI residents in the previous 4 quarters. The ability to rebut the presumption of nexus appears similar to NY but as I've mentioned, every state can have a different interpretation so the process may be different.

    Senate is expected to follow with a similar vote. They are hearing it today.

    The Rhode Island Senate passed the budget this evening, also by a huge margin:

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The Rhode Island Senate has approved a $7.8-billion state spending plan, sending the budget bill to the governor's desk and ending a 24-hour delay on the key vote attributed to sparring legislative leaders.

    Governor Carcieri had not decided whether to veto the measure, which raises the state gasoline tax by 2 cents a gallon but cuts $55 million from cities and towns and narrows pension benefits for thousands of teachers and state workers.

    The final Senate vote, cast at 7:32 p.m., was 34 to 2.
