The advisory group on pensions put together by Governor Chafee and Treasurer Raimondo will gather for the first time next week.

“The charge of the group is to vet and organize information for the Governor and Treasurer as they work to develop a comprehensive solution to submit to the General Assembly in October for the special session on pension reform,” according to the official announcement.
Raimondo’s office is asking members of the public to submit their ideas for changing the pension system at this website.
Update: The advisory group will hold its meeting at URI’s College of Continuous Learning in Providence. If you want to attend, it’s 80 Washington St., Room 242.
