DOVER, Del. (AP) - State lawmakers and cabinet officials are meeting with leaders of Delaware’s three counties to discuss the interplay between state and local spending plans.

Recognizing that state government now pays programs that were once funded by the counties, members of the legislature’s Joint Finance Committee formed a State/County Finance and Revenue Committee earlier this year.

No agenda was posted for Wednesday’s committee meeting, but lawmakers have said the committee will suggest efficiencies, improvements and cost savings to the state.

Issues to be considered include, but are not limited to, the realty transfer tax, registers of wills, and operations and training associated with county paramedics.

The committee is charged with recommending funding and policy changes to the General Assembly and governor’s office by Jan. 15.
