The union representatives to the State Health Benefits Plan Design Committee issued the following letter in response to Governor Christie’s Executive Order on health insurance costs:

Dear Legislator,

Yesterday, Governor Christie issued an Executive Order – EO 209 – that violates Chapter 78, in that he seeks to unilaterally implement plan design changes to the State Health Benefits Plan and the School Employees Health Benefits Plan. The statute gives sole authority for changes to Plan Design to the Plan Design Committees of both plans. Not only will pursuit of the EO result in unnecessary litigation, it unnecessarily interferes with a highly successful process that once established has produced more than a half a billion in savings.
