General Treasurer Seth Magaziner is celebrating the overwhelming support from voters in passing the School Construction Bond referenda in Central Falls and Portsmouth.  

One of Treasurer Magaziner’s key 2021 legislative priorities was a bill the Treasurer introduced in partnership with Mayor Maria Rivera, Senator Jonathon Acosta, and Representative Joshua Giraldo that will enable the City of Central Falls to fund the construction of a new state-of-the-art high school.  

As co-chair of the Rhode Island School Building Task Force, Treasurer Magaziner led the development of a once-in-a-generation plan to repair or replace Rhode Island’s crumbling public school buildings. The statewide school construction program was approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 and has already allocated $1.4 billion to repair or replace 176 school buildings in communities across the state, creating 23,500 up-front jobs and benefitting over 95,000 Rhode Island students annually.
