I’m happy to announce that the Senate passed the firefighters cancer coverage bill! Here I stand with firefighters from Torrington who came all the way to the Capitol to support the bill’s passage. I am proud to stand by them. This bill will establish a relief fund used for wage replacement of those who are diagnosed with certain conditions of cancer as a result of their service as paid municipal or volunteer firefighters.
Today, I was awarded with the 2016 Friend of the Family Award by the CT Family Resource Center Alliance. Each year the Alliance honors legislators based on their commitment and support to FRCs statewide.
