A New York county executive plans to announce a new effort to bring fiscally stressed local governments together to share their best ideas before they become "distressed" under a new state definition.

Ulster County Executive Mike Hein wants local governments to help each other before they reach the "distressed" status that could trigger state involvement in restructuring local operations.
