RI Business Coalition

Formed approximately two years ago, the Coalition is comprised of 26 professional groups. Along with Chambers of Commerce, the RI Manufacturing Association, RI Builders Association, SBANE, to name a few, is RIPEC, the RI Public Expenditures Council, the foundational centerpiece of the Coalition. Through our collaborative efforts, we’ve achieved success in helping influence our government leaders to reduce the corporate income tax rate from 9 % to 7% and to eliminate the cliff while elevating the associated estate tax exemption to $1.5 million. The group has gained significant recognition and respect in a relatively short period of time.
