Baker's Proposed FY '17 budget

Governor Baker released his proposed FY ‘17 budget yesterday afternoon. 

Our state members who rely on the GIC for healthcare coverage should know that the governor is attempting once again to increase GIC health insurance contribution rates for workers who were hired prior to July 1, 2003.  If you were hired before this date you are currently paying 20 percent of total premium costs.  If you were hired after that date you are paying 25 percent of premium costs.

Behavioral Management System

Brothers/Sisters,

The Department has asked us for Programs where we feel the Behavioral Based System has fallen short when holding the young men/women in our care accountable. We as a whole are looking for ways to improve it and make it work better for us all. If you either work at a program which has fallen short in these areas or work at a program where this system in working great then we would like to hear from you! Any ideas are welcome and appreciated, as we move forward to hopefully correct this system and again make it a tool at our disposal.

Thanks
