— The Schenectady County Legislature voted Tuesday to encourage the passage of the Municipal Health Insurance Savings Act.

Introduced by Assemblyman Phil Steck, D-Colonie, the bill would allow towns, villages and school districts to join county self-insured health plans as a way to drive down costs. The bill is sponsored in the Senate by Joseph Griffo, R-Rome.

“Schenectady County is proud to have one of the most successful health care cost-containment strategies in New York state — saving over $10 million annually for the taxpayers of Schenectady County,” Legislature Chairman Anthony Jasenski said in a news release.
