PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Rhode Island House leaders are set to vote Thursday on the 2023 state budget.

Gov. Dan McKee released the state’s $13.6 billion budget earlier this year.

In the budget, the governor highlights no tax increases, school construction, and funding set aside for affordable housing.

The Tidewater Landing project in Pawtucket is not part of the budget, but the governor is proposing other ways to send additional state funds.

The budget is also expected to eliminate the state’s car tax, as part of an effort to save Rhode Islander’s $64 million this year.
