Moreover, the Assembly has yet to finalize a budget for 17-18, which is a priority. That they haven't been able to is a predictably stupid shame. But that's another story.
All of these things mentioned are true. A lot of time has transpired and nothing agreed between the state and the Red Sox. Nothing has happened - so why expect it now? It's dysfunctional - whether that is the Red Sox Fault or the State or RI's fault or Pawtucket or Providence or Warwick government it does not matter - I just don't see Paw Sox staying in RI.
State General Assembly not finalizing a Budget just another example.
