A General Assembly session is set Tuesday for the introduction of the much-anticipated pension bill:
The Rhode Island House of Representatives and Senate will convene separate sessions on Tuesday, October 18, at 4 p.m., to introduce pension reform legislation presented by General Treasurer Gina Raimondo and Governor Lincoln Chafee. The bills will then be assigned to the respective House and Senate Finance Committees.
At the conclusion of the two sessions, the House and Senate will meet jointly in the House Chamber to receive addresses by both Governor Chafee and General Treasurer Raimondo.
The sessions will be broadcast by Capitol Television, which can be seen on Channel 15 for Cox Communications and Full Channel cable subscribers and Channel 34 for Verizon viewers.
