Rhode Island lawmakers are expected to wrap up the regular part of their 2015 session later this week. It remains unknown for now if legislators will return to hold a special session later this year.Governor Gina Raimondo is pressing lawmakers to back a plan to fund bridge improvements through new tolls on truck.

The state Trucking Association opposes the plan.

Meanwhile, the fate of a proposal to build a Providence stadium for the Pawtucket Red Sox remains up in the air. If the state and the PawSox come to terms on a deal over the summer, lawmakers may return to hold hearings on the proposal later this year.
