As Rhode Island's 8-billion-dollar budget heads to the governor, more votes are on the table Tuesday.
A vote is expected today on the measure referred to as the Homeless Bill of Rights. The proposal is designed to prevent discrimination by banning law enforcement, health care workers, landlords, and employers from treating homeless people unfairly.
It passed in the senate, but got hung up in the house.
Also in the hands of lawmakers today; taxes on the casino industry. The Providence Journal reports the House Finance Committee delayed a decision Monday.
It's based on state regulation of the industry, assuming voters approve slot parlors for Newport Grand and Twin River when they head to the polls in November.
