EXETER â€“ When Governor Lincoln Chafee rescinded the E-Verify program established by his predecessor, Don Carcieri, as one of his first official acts in office back in January, it was a controversial move that several senators throughout the state objected to.
Now, local Senators Francis T. Maher, Jr., (Dist. 34, Charlestown, Hopkinton, Exeter, Richmond and West Greenwich) and Sen. James Sheehan (Dist. 36, North Kingstown and Narragansett) have decided to do something about it.
