Cancer Presumption Passes PA Senate Uniamiously
Posted On: Apr 14, 2011
Fire Fighter Cancer Presumption Passes First Hurdle
 
The PPFFA is proud to announce that Senate Bill 654, the fire fighter cancer presumption bill, passed by a 50 – 0 vote out of the Pennsylvania Senate on April 12.  This legislation was fast tracked by Senate leadership after the disappointing veto by former Governor Ed Rendell last year.  “To put the time line in perspective, HB 1231 was introduced on April 6, 2009.  This legislation has already passed one chamber of the legislature and we are confident it will continue to move quickly” said President Art Martynuska.  He went on to say, “This legislation is much farther along than it was last session and we look forward to soon having the protections our members need soon.” 
 
The PPFFA will continue to press the House of Representatives to act quickly on this issue.  We will keep updating this site as developments happen.
