2006 House Bill 6694

Senate Roll Call 980: The amendment was not adopted

To eliminate a requirement that before borrowing to cover retiree health care benefit liabilities a local government must "reduce" future health care costs (and liabilities), which would require greater co-pays from government employees, or going to a defined contribution plan for new employees. Instead, local governments would only have to "control" health care costs.
