Recently Introduced Measure Would Remedy Problem Highlighted in Scathing SCI Report
Following Tuesday’s State Commission of Investigation report that highlighted the inconsistency in how some municipal officials pay their share for taxpayer-provided health benefits, Assemblywoman Connie Wagner said legislation she recently introduced would remedy the shortcoming the review uncovered.
The SCI report offered a blistering critique of municipal financial practices, including in how local governments cover employee health care costs. The agency found “most governmental entities require no employee contributions, and those that do have established inconsistent rates,” recommending that, “at a minimum,” local employees cover a flat 1.5 percent of their plan cost.

Every once in a while, a movie comes along that's so good, you find yourself wishing you could jump into the screen and become best friends with the characters, even if they are a pack of wild animals.
At least that is what's likely to happen while watching Wes Anderson's"Fantastic Mr. Fox,"
the director's first try at animation, which was inspired by Roald Dahl's 1970s children's book of the same name.

The murder of 4 fellow officers is a tragic reminder that the field of law enforcement is a dangerous one. Every day, thousands of the men and women who protect our communities say farewell to those they love. For those 4 officers, Sunday was their final goodbye. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Griswold, Owens, Renninger and Richards families. I hope they find the solace they seek during this difficult hour.
