Pension smoothing has some new enemies with a citizens budget watchdog group urging rejection of Governor Cuomo's plan on the basis it will undermine future solvency of the plan that covers all state workers and employees of local governments.
The Cuomo plan has its supporters including the NYS Conference of Mayors.
Meanwhile, a group of county executives from around the state are urging the Governor to be more assertive in pursuing mandate relief for local governments.
Sounds like a little posturing for 2014 may be happening.
