To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield, This week, my committee met for the last time to discuss HB1517, on temporary seasonal docks. We started with half of us saying “it’s not broke, don’t fix it” and the other half providing different simple solutions. After going through the unintended consequences of each solution, we unanimously agreed the issue needed more study. The statute gives full responsibility for docks to DES (environmental services), and they are not really set up to resolve the inevitable clashes between neighbors.


I also attended a public hearing on possible changes to the medical plan for state retirees. About a $30 million increase is estimated for the next budget, some from increased medical costs and some from increased numbers of retirees, since they are living longer and many are eligible to retire right now. It was necessary to discuss this now because some changes need to be done on a calendar year basis, and the budget is on a fiscal year. A lot of retirees came to plead for lower cost coverage, which would mean more money from the general fund and all of us.


Business tax receipts are up, but this year’s increase has already been committed. For the next budget, the question is what priorities should get increased funding. Retiree health care is important; these people were promised “free health care for life” and many long time employees accepted lower wages for better benefits. That is not true for more recent employees; the pay + benefits package now is better for state employees than most private workers. This is another complex problem with many moving parts that won’t be solved easily.


Interested readers can email me for my newsletter, with more details than fit here.
