Rhode Island House Bill 7074 would amend the state animal cruelty code to “ban a person or manufacturer from selling or offering for sale any cosmetic that was developed or manufactured using animal testing, if the test was conducted or contracted by the manufacturer or any supplier of the manufacturer on or after January 1, 2023.” The bill has been referred to the House Committee on Health and Human Services.
