PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Monday, Governor Lincoln D. Chafee and General Treasurer Gina M. Raimondo will offer opening remarks at the first meeting of the Pension Advisory Group. The Governor and Treasurer have pledged to work together through the summer to craft a comprehensive solution for state pension system reform.
The 12 member voluntary group is an advisory body that includes local and national experts on pension reform from business, academia and labor. The charge of the group is to vet and organize information for the Governor and Treasurer as they work to develop a comprehensive solution for the General Assembly to consider during the special session on pension reform this fall.
The group will help foster honest dialogue about the real sacrifices that will be required to re-design a system that
• Attracts quality employees • Provides a level of security for its retirees • Preserves funding for public services • Protects taxpayers
