A press conference scheduled for Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. to discuss the results of mediation regarding the pension reform bill lawsuit has been rescheduled.

In an early morning news release the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service announced that the press conference would be postponed at the request of attorneys for the State and for Rhode Island public employee unions and retirees.

The release says the parties will continue to talk and work with federal mediators on the matter.

In a morning meeting of the Rhode Island Retirement Board, General Treasurer Gina Raimondo said that the pension deal is something too important to rush.
