The fund will be used for firefighters who are battling work-related cancer. House Bill 5262 provides compensation for current and former uniformed members of a paid or volunteer fire department who suffer from certain diseases as a result of performing their jobs.
Representatives Henry Genga, Jason Rojas and Jeff Currey hailed Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s announcement Thursday that East Hartford is among six municipalities in the state being awarded grants to develop plans for remediating and developing clusters of brownfield sites.
Representative Henry Genga joined his East Hartford colleagues in the state legislature in December in voting to balance the state budget. In an op-ed article Genga co-authored he outlined the steps they took to make necessary cuts in spending while protecting his constituents.
