University "very disappointed" in bill's signing, will "consider all of its options"
Bryant University President Ronald K. Machtley issued the following statement this evening, July 11, 2013:
We are very disappointed that Governor Chafee did not veto the legislation previously approved by the Rhode Island General Assembly (S 0025 and H 5083).
We continue to believe this legislation is unconstitutional, unwarranted, and needlessly divisive. We will meet with the town in the hope that amicable and fair agreements can be reached to avoid expensive and time-consuming litigation. However, the University will now undertake a review and consider all of its options, including litigation, until this matter is satisfactorily resolved.
