On May 15 You’re the Cure advocates descended on the State House for Rhode Island Lobby Day. Advocates thanked their senators for unanimously passing our “CPR in Schools” bill and urged House members to quickly follow suit. The group was persuasive and successful – this lifesaving legislation was approved by the House Health, Education and Welfare Committee on May 23 and is now scheduled for a vote before the full House on May 29! Watch the vote live on Capitol TV - Cox channel 15, Verizon Fios channel 34. The bill is the first item on the floor calendar, so expect the vote around 4:15p.m.-4:30 p.m.
