GPCC President Laurie White Weekly Contributor on 630 WPRO AM

Today, GPCC President Laurie White commenced her weekly Chamber Update with Tara Granahan & Andrew Gobeil on 630 WPRO AM. Laurie will contribute weekly business briefs each Monday morning at 6:20 AM.

Referencing Sunday’s New York Times article “The Little State With a Big Mess” http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/23/business/for-rhode-island-the-pension-crisis-is-now.html, Laurie underscored the importance of the General Assembly passing Governor Chafee & General Treasurer Raimondo’s pension reform legislative package (without a tax increase); as across the country, government bankruptcy considerations are becoming a daunting reality.

Rhode Island’s reform model for dealing w/ this crisis has created intrigue from national observers. It is an opportunity, not only for the Ocean State, but may offer a template of reform measures for others.
