Sign A Virtual Petition in Support of Pension Reform

The Chamber and many business organizations are banding together to support comprehensive and sustainable pension reform.

Specifically the Chamber is calling on its members to endorse the Retirement Security Act of 2011 — legislation submitted by Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee and General Treasurer Gina Raimondo, and introduced by Speaker of the House Gordon Fox and Senate President Teresa Paiva Weed earlier this week, which is aimed at addressing the state’s unfunded pension system.

To demonstrate the breadth and depth of support for this position, we are compiling a virtual petition.

Click here to and include your name and company name.

Other ways to get involved:
*Attend the rally at the State House. EngageRI will hold a rally in the State House Rotunda at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26th to show support for the Rhode Island Retirement Security Act and Governor Chafee,Treasurer Raimondo and General Assembly leadership who are all supporting the bill.

Your participation in this forum is essential to send the message that pension reform is directly linked to the state’s economic climate and more specifically, our ability to spur small business development, grow investment in local innovation and most importantly create jobs.

*Give your feedback! To communicate with members of the General Assembly directly, you can visit a new web site designed specifically for the public to give its feedback on the pension reform plan. Click here to visit the site.
