Yes - Politico is reporting a lot as it happens!

Doug did a calculation on what it would cost for the MH system but he wants to do a few re-calculations including more staff - and then we'd like to have a conversation with you and Glenn (others?) before we make it public. He got the information from all the CFRs. All the other sectors have a number. We should too, and we should get it in the press. Doug is close.

Reports are that talks between NYS Senate, Assembly and Administration officials are "progressing well" and that they are looking at different regional rates and a potentially longer ramp-up. Stay tuned.
