After hearing the Woonsocket delegation's support for the supplemental tax bill, the House Finance Committee has scheduled a vote on the measure Tuesday.
Larry Berman, communications director for the Speaker, said bill was tabled because nobody from the Woonsocket delegation testified on the bill, which left their position on the measure in doubt.
"The House leadership was waiting for them to weigh in on this," Berman said. He said members of the city's delegation have since stated they're in favor of the bill.
The vote on the bill (2012-S 2872A), sponsored by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Daniel Da Ponte (D-Dist. 14, East Providence, Pawtucket), is scheduled Tuesday, May 22, at 3 p.m. in Room 35 on the basement level of the State House.
The hearing will be televised live by Capitol Television, which can be seen on Channel 15 by Cox and Full Channel subscribers and on Channel 34 by Verizon viewers.
