State of Rhode Island secondary Archives: on Families & Children

Bob Flanders: Senate candidates accused of sexual abuse should withdraw

A sampling of his views: The defiant GOP nominee Roy Moore should exit the U.S. Senate race in Alabama in light of the "serious" sexual-abuse charges lobbed against him. Congress should adopt "common-sense limitations" on the constitutional right to bear arms, including a ban on devices that turn guns into "massive killing machines," and it should remove "the incentive" for undocumented immigrants to sneak their children across the border, while making some "accommodation" for the children already here.

Gina Raimondo: Pass modern, common-sense paid sick leave laws

Let's make sure people have a fair shot by allowing them a day off if they're sick or their kid's sick. It's time to give every Rhode Islander an opportunity to earn paid leave if they're sick or if they need to care for a sick child or parent.

Our neighbors across most of New England and in states across the country--states run by Democrats and Republicans--have passed or introduced modern, common-sense paid sick leave laws. Let's do the same thing here in Rhode Island.
