Chafee, Raimondo, Fox, Paiva Weed get closed-door pension briefing
This just in from RIPR's Ian Donnis:
Gov. Lincoln Chafee, State Treasurer Gina Raimondo, House Speaker Gordon Fox and Senate President Tersea Paiva Weed met privately at the State House this afternoon for a 90-minute closed-door briefing on the proposed state pension overhaul legal settlement.
The settlement details are scheduled to be released on Wednesday. The parties to the pension lawsuit have been under a gag order by Superior Court Judge Sarah Taft-Carter for more than a year. None of the state officials in today’s meeting disclosed any settlement details.
