Council members had trouble even agreeing on when to hold the next public hearing. John Quincy wanted to wait for stakeholder meetings and an answer from the insurance commissioner.
“I don’t want this committee or the public hearing to be a place of refinement of it and having a room full of people suggesting changes,” Quincy said. “I’d like to have that kind of fully baked before it’s brought out to the public hearing.“
The committee’s chair, Council Member Lisa Goodman, emphasized the need for transparency.
“I personally think that the kind of public hearing when the decision’s already been made is terrible,” she said. “I think it’s better to have a public hearing, hear from everyone who has a concern and attempt — to the best that we can — to take another cycle and deal with those issues.”
The committee is not expected to vote on the issue until early May.
