The Massachusetts Taxpayer Foundation just released an analysis showing just much damage the enhanced retiree benefits in the Senate Budget's version of municipal health reform could do. The MTF identified 50 communities that would be affected, but say that with more analysis, probably as many as 100 towns and cities will face increased retiree healthcare costs with this measure. Some communities the MTF studied would be stuck with hundreds of thousands of dollars in new costs.

This is all the more reason to call the members of the Conference Committee now and urge them not to pass this measure!
