Republican Party of RI Renew Calls for Inspector General Following Federal Probe Announcement  

Warwick, RI – Today, Republican Party of Rhode Island Chairman Joe Powers is renewing the call to create the Office of Inspector General following the report that the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Office of Inspector General are investigating the abrupt closure of the I95 bridge.

“The recent announcement of a federal probe into the circumstances surrounding the abrupt closure of the I95 bridge underscores the need for an impartial entity to ensure transparency and accountability.

An independent Inspector General is crucial not only for a thorough examination of the decisions leading to the bridge closure but also as a means to regain the general public’s trust.

For years, both Republicans and Democrats have advocated for the establishment of an independent inspector general’s office. It’s time for the Legislature to act and establish the Office of Inspector General.”
