Members of the tea party rally at the State House in Providence, Tuesday, April 15, 2014.

Tea party members in Rhode Island rallied on Tuesday, the same day income taxes are due.

The political movement that calls on the government to follow the Constitution held its annual rally at the State House.

The Rhode Island Tea Party is also calling for a lower sales tax and elimination of straight-ticket voting.
