The original tape has been copied onto a surrogate cassette tape and digitized into high-quality mp3 format. The duplicate cassette copy contains all the material recorded on the originals which may include extraneous content such as advertisements, public service announcements, background noise, and background voices that were inadvertently recorded when the tape machine was left on. The mp3 file was edited so that only the subject matter, as indicated on the title, was retained.

The recording also includes Chafee news release regarding the food stamp program, tax cuts, and employment.
