Possible Settlement In Pension Lawsuit

It appears a settlement is in the works in the legal battle over the 2011 state pension overhaul.  A notice has been sent to retired state workers that they will vote on a proposed settlement on Monday at Twin River Casino's event center.  Before the vote, the pension lawsuit special court master will explain details of the proposed settlement.  Past and current state workers sued to block the pension reforms, which seek to save the state billions in pension costs over the next two decades.
