Rhode Island Senate Bill 2608 proposes to amend the state’s anti-cruelty statute to include a ban on the sale of any cosmetic developed or manufactured using an animal test on or after January 1, 2021. A violation would be punishable by a fine of up to $1000 per offense. The legislation contains exemptions for when no viable alternative test is available or the test is required by federal law.
