Statement

Date:
Location: Providence, RI

Rhode Island Governor Lincoln D. Chafee announced this morning that he will file an amicus brief with the Rhode Island Supreme Court in support of the City of Providence's efforts to move retirees into Medicare.

"Given Providence's dire fiscal condition, the reasonable and necessary measures Providence has already undertaken, and the important implications for the entire state involved in this case, I have decided to file an amicus brief with the Rhode Island Supreme Court articulating the state's significant interests in this matter. The outcome of this case will not only affect Providence, but potentially all municipal and state efforts to achieve fiscal health through needed reforms," Governor Chafee said.
