President Ruggerio’s statement on departure of Sen.


Goldin from Senate for post in Biden administration


Below is a statement from President of the Senate Dominick J. Ruggerio on Sen. Goldin’s resignation to accept a position in the Biden administration:


President of the Senate Dominick J. Ruggerio said, “Senator Gayle Goldin leaves an indelible mark on our state, and I thank her for her service. She made Rhode Island a national leader on Paid Family Leave, also known as Temporary Caregiver Insurance. When it was enacted here, Rhode Island was just the third state in the nation to offer workers this important benefit. For many years, Senator Goldin championed the strong pay equity law that was enacted this year. She fought tirelessly on adoption issues and for working families. The Biden administration is gaining a dedicated and passionate public servant. I wish her and her family the very best.”
