Legislative analysts lack details to confirm full concession savings (CT Mirror)

Posted on June 7, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

For the past few weeks, we’ve all been puzzling over the details of Gov. Malloy’s union concessions.

It appears we’re not the only ones!

While the House was debating the details of a 277-page omnibus tax bill (which passed the House 83 to 63 mostly along party lines early this morning), the Office of Fiscal Analysis was raising questions of its own.

The Connecticut Mirror reports that while the Office of Fiscal Analysis was “careful to neither endorse nor refute the Malloy Administration’s savings estimates involving proposed changes to pension and health benefits, longevity pay or undefined policy changes involving health care, technology and other government operations,” OFA Director Alan Calandro wrote in a memo to House Minority Leader Larry Cafero: “Please note that at this time we are unable to determine or verify the levels that are contained in these estimates in many cases.”

The memo poses numerous questions regarding many of the healthcare and pension changes and their assumed savings.
