Rhode Island’s state Senate on Tuesday passed a bill that would require candidates for president and vice president to make their tax returns public in order to get on the Rhode Island ballot.
The bill — which passed by a 34-to-3 vote — now goes to the state House.
The Providence Journal reported that “Republican Sen. Elaine Morgan of Hopkinton asked why the president should have to do that, if state lawmakers face no such requirement.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The legislation’s lead sponsor, Sen. Gayle Goldin (D), noted that every presidential candidate since Richard Nixon voluntarily released their tax returns until Donald Trump’s presidential run.
“Tax returns provide essential information about candidates’ conflicts of interest,” Goldin argued.
