After a two year hiatus the Rhode Island Tea Party says it will bring back its annual Tax Day Rally today at 4 p.m.

The rally was originally scheduled to take place on the lawn of the State House but due to rain has been moved inside to the Bell Room.

The RI Tea Party was formed in 2009 and has been lobbying for lower taxes and smaller government at the RI State House since its beginning.

In 2009-2011 the Tea Party hosted large rallies outside the State House attracting hundreds of people. In 2012, the Tea Party put the brakes on the rallies and focused its efforts on the State House.
