"The Governor has been talking about municipal consolidation but some of us have been working on that too for example I have legislation that would allow all municipalities to join county self-insured health plans that would save tax payers a lot of money, it would save employees a lot of money… What the Governor was saying is that there is a lot of challenges ahead that he is up to those challenges, I think we are as well in the New York State Assembly and we are looking forward to developing some concrete proposals that implement solutions to those problems for example the one that I'm talking about, which deals with lowering health insurance costs for municipalities and ultimately the tax payers." said Assemblyman Phil Steck after the State of the State speech by the governor.
