is staked out outside the meeting to try and get a sense of how the FOP plans to fight a planned health insurance premium increase the city is proposing as part of a budget plan unwrapped this morning. Even though the mayor is proposing merit raises and cost of living increases, both the police and firefighters groups are saying that's not enough to offset some of the costs their members will have to shoulder as a result of this move. Sherea's live on FOX6 News at 9 to update us on what the FOP wants to do.
