No welfare checks were written Friday in Rhode Island. No criminals were prosecuted, no driver's licenses were issued or renewed, no legislation was passed and not a single lawyer filed a new case in state court. State government, the largest employer in Rhode Island, simply did not open. And it will do that nine more times before the end of the fiscal year on June 30 in an effort not to go broke. From state parks to the Statehouse, doors were locked and most workers were told to stay home.
