Effort to cut lifetime health benefit for Metro Council is still alive. Council will continue to consider it.

The Tennessean - A majority of Metro Council want to deliberate further on a piece of legislation that could curb lifetime health benefits for future elected Nashville council members. 

Council members decided just before 2 a.m. Wednesday in a close 20-18 vote to bring back renewed efforts to reduce the growing Metro financial obligation in covering lifetime health insurance for former two-term council members. (link)

Rod's Comment:  As soon as the minutes of the meeting are posted I will list how council members voted. 

In my view this is a benefit that needs to end. We are the only city in America that does this. The Federal government does not do this and the State government does not do this.  No private company does this. For more of my opinion on the topic follow this link.
