Legislative Wrap-Ups

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, during the 2020 legislative session very few hearings were held after mid-March and few bills were passed and signed into law. The budget, which is normally passed and signed into law in late June, was not passed and signed into law until late December.

Rhode Island KIDS COUNT is pleased to share our 2020 Legislative Wrap-Up! This highlights legislative victories for children and summarizes selected laws and budget appropriations in the areas of economic well-being, early learning and development, education, health, and safety that were considered during the 2020 session of the Rhode Island General Assembly. We hope this is a helpful resource as you continue your work on behalf of Rhode Island's children and families.
