Municipal Health Care Update:

Conference committees members are still meeting and debating over differences between the Senate and House's versions of municipal health insurance reform.   We are told by Senate and House leadership that they should have a mutually agreed upon bill to send to the Governor roughly a week before the June 30th FY budget deadline.

In the mean time, various organizations are putting forth their opinions on how the State should perform savings within plan design.  Some of these Wall Street Funded groups like the Mass. Taxpayers Association and others

are presenting skewed facts to the public that only confuse what all parties are seeking to achieve in savings for municipalities and a real voice for our public employees.
