Peake says there are concerns with Senator Brown's bill from the house, including the size of city council, the role of the sheriff, and the timing of when the bill will be implemented.
Peake says the biggest sticking point right now is the authority of the mayor in Brown's bill.
Even though disputes need to be resolved, both politicians say consolidation could fall into the hands of voters.
"I think we have a 95 to 99 percent chance of this bill clearing the senate and the house," said State Senator Brown.
"I think if we all put our heads together for the betterment of our community we can come up with something good. The good news is all parties have agreed that consolidation is a good thing so now it's just the matter of figuring out the details," said Rep. Peake.
The last three days of the House session begin next week, so time is running out for legislators to resolve conflicting points.
Representative Peake will hold a press conference tomorrow to reveal the plan of the house, moving forward in the consolidation debate.
