Consequently, there is growing discussion of imminent legislation that would create a “Super Control Board” patterned on the Emergency Financial Control Board, which was first created to address the New York City fiscal crisis of 1975. Creation of such a “Super Control Board” would affect, among other things, the approval of and payment on distressed municipalities’ contracts with their vendors in the private sector.
