At the State House, Assembly members looked into the tool kit for property tax reform and prepared for what could be the most important tool of them all. Arbitration. The challenge is how to pay increases to police and fire fighters and remain under the two percent cap. While the Assembly Budget Committee today delved into arbitration reform, mostly behind the scenes, Chairman Louis Greenwald stated “This is obvously a complex issue and it’s worth doing right.” The committee did advance a bill that limits unused sick leave payouts for all current and future public officers and employees to no more than fifteen thousand dollars. Another bill authorizes joint liability funds for state college risk management groups, and yet another limits the amount of ballot mailings to voters.
