Michael DiBiase commented on a Providence Business News article about Rhode Island’s $1.25 billion federal Coronavirus Relief Fund allocation, and the $900 million that remains unspent and unencumbered with the December 31 deadline to do so looming. Stating that “Individual Rhode Islanders and Rhode Island businesses . . . should have received a larger portion of these funds,” DiBiase also suggested that part of the Fund be used to replenish the state’s depleted unemployment insurance trust fund.
