Today: Key RI committee considers delaying/passing if-not-when debate's inevitable gains
The right side of history will flash before the Rhode Island House Judiciary Committee this afternoon, and that panel is expected to easily pass the measure on to the full chamber:

This measure of basic fairness is also expected to prevail in the full House, but there seems be a question mark attached to whether the state Senate will seize the winds of this day or continue to delay/deny justice for certain kinds of taxpayers.
Either way, history will be watching. It's a great chance for Rhode Island, long known for being small, to take an outsized step in the right direction. I'm confident that the majority will side with the objective clocks, all of which are running toward future freedoms rather than regressing to the biases of a less-than-just past.
**UPDATE: Unanimous approval
