(Providence, RI) -- The Rhode Island General Assembly is passing bills focusing on revenge porn and sextortion, public school safety and the banning of advertising of unhealthy food in schools. The revenge porn bill is a compromise between the General Assembly, Attorney General Peter Kilmartin and Governor Gina Raimondo after Raimondo vetoed similar legislation in 2016. The school safety bill creates the Rhode Island School Safety Committee and requires school districts to conduct safety assessments every three years. The unhealthy food law would forbid the advertising of food that does not meet the minimum nutritional standards set forth by the USDA under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
