It's been an exciting few weeks at the State House! Our "Healthy School Marketing" bill is gaining momentum. The Senate approved this important measure on May 2nd by a vote of 32-1. The House followed suit on May 17th, passing its version of the bill by a vote of 58-10. One of the chambers (House or Senate) must now pass the other chamber's bill in concurrence - and then it will head to Governor Raimondo's desk! We are very close to ensuring only healthy foods and beverages are advertised and marketed to children on school property - please keep an eye out for action alerts and help us keep the pressure on lawmakers to get this done!
