There's another push this year to make Calamari Rhode Island's official state appetizer.

Representative Joe Mcnamara said he's reintroducing the legislation.

He said the dish made up of lightly fried fresh squid served with banana peppers is one of the state's best plus, it highlights the fishing industry.

Similar legislation passed the house last year but died in the senate.
