hero_image_alt_text===Healthy School Marketing bill vote
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!
