This interview focuses on how recently passed legislation and court decisions will impact municipal management and costs. Legislation discussed has weakened city and town ability to manage and control cost while disproportionately benefitting and empowering government employees and their unions. The underfunded municipal pensions are at further peril as a consequence. Contract law may be at odds with the legislation in question. On the other hand, recent court decisions may have given municipalities some tools to control government cost and a means to seek relief.
