A state lawmaker is making another effort to repeal Rhode Island's outdated laws.

House Majority Whip John Edwards, a Democrat, has tried before to create a joint committee within the General Assembly to review laws and recommend which ones are no longer needed.

He says he has introduced legislation again to create the committee.

In Rhode Island, a law restricting the amount of seaweed Barrington residents can take from the public beach has been on the books for about 200 years.

Another law allows for a fine of up to $5 for every person guilty of profane swearing and cursing.

Edwards says some of the laws aren't just archaic, but they also hinder business.

He says it's time to toss arbitrary statutes that choke the economy and cause confusion.
