Please take the time to read the following email and forward this to your members, family, and  friends.


The bill is currently in the Senate Labor and Industry Committee and if moved out of the committee will go to the entire Senate for a vote and if passed will become law.

HB1231 which includes Cancer Presumption for Pennsylvania's Firefighters is currently being considered in the Senate Labor and Industry Committee.  With enough support from Pennsylvania's Emergency Responder community this legislation stands a chance at leaving the committee for a vote on the floor of the full Senate! 

Let your Senator know today that you support this legislation and that you'd like it to come out of committee and become LAW!  This Bill has already passed in the House and this VERY important step will help us win this worthy presumption for all who have given so much and suffered in return!

Please take a moment to contact your Senator today and Take Action to voice your support for this important legislation and that you'd like it OUT of the L&I Committee and onto the floor for a YES vote!  Take a moment or two to personalize the message and let your Senator know how Cancer Presumption would affect you or your Department!
