They must reduce costs by $30+ millon over the next three years to stay off the ballot until 2014. The forecast already has eliminated COLAS so they have to eliminate steps for at least 2 years and reduce health care costs by 15% starting in fiscal year 2012 to have a chance. Increase in class size could save some dollars. They also could pick up $6 million if the state budget shifts 2% from taxpayers to employees for pension costs.
But will they?
