Hearing Scheduled Soon For East Providence Term Extension Attempt

The Rhode Island Board of Elections is scheduling a hearing to decide if East Providence council members can extend their terms from two to four years. The hearing is to take place on May 14th. The East Providence board is citing a 2012 referendum that said terms for council members were to be extended from two to four years, but the city never made the change. State Attorney General Peter Kilmartin also took action this week to ask the Rhode Island Supreme Court to clarify what's allowable.
