Representative Lauren Carson (D – Dist. 75, Newport) joined me on What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on AM 1540 WADK Newport at the start of the show to chat about her proposed “talking bus bill” that was expected to be heard at the State House last night. I carried on to read what Newport City Councilor Kate Leonard would be presenting to the committee, and share a few other thoughts.

I also provided an update on the proposed sale of the Armory, including the latest from the City Manager’s office.
