Statement from President Ruggerio,  Majority Leader McCaffrey regarding Roe v. Wade


STATE HOUSE – Below is a statement from President of the Senate Dominick J. Ruggerio and Senate Majority Leader Michael J. McCaffrey:

“In anticipation of a decision like the one the Supreme Court made today, the Senate acted in 2019 to codify Roe v. Wade into state law. As a result, no Rhode Islander is losing rights today. The EACA has financial implications and should be considered as part of the budget, but was not included in the proposal presented to the Legislature in January, or in the budget the House sent to the Senate last week. We plan to address this issue in the 2023 session.”
