State of the State RI

Guest: Samuel Zurier, Providence City Councilman
Host: Mike Stenhouse Time: 30 minutes
Councilman Zurier expresses his concern regarding the Providence City pension system and views it in crisis. He points out that there are no simple solutions; but there are solutions, which all stakeholders must be a part of. The sources of the problems go back decades and Zurier notes these in historical perspective. He gives credit where credit is due regarding various attempts to address pension problems; and some solutions have helped. However, all these attempts have been less than adequate as the crisis continues to worsen. Future solutions are discussed and evaluated, including bankruptcy.
