2017 Benefit Sweetener Scorecard

May 15, 2017

With six weeks remaining in the State Legislative session, bills are starting to move through the legislative process, including proposals to enhance the benefits of State and local public employees and retirees. This first edition of the Citizens Budget Commission’s 2017 Benefit Sweetener Scorecard identifies more than 90 such bills active this session, which could cost the State and local governments hundreds of millions of dollars per year. Indeed, the cumulative cost could be far greater, but cannot be determined, since two-thirds of the bills are not accompanied by the required fiscal impact statement. Bills to enhance disability benefits are most common, but other costly bills would increase pension benefits, enhance death benefits, and expand eligibility or limit changes to health insurance benefits. Some of the proposals would unravel recent hard fought-compromises between the State and organized labor that decreased state pension and health insurance costs in exchange for avoiding layoffs. All of these bills should be rejected, as they would increase taxpayers’ liabilities without improving services.

As the legislative session continues, this scorecard will be updated to monitor the status of each proposal, and new bills will be added as necessary.
