Huge Win for First Responders

FIRST RESPONDERS: we had a huge win in the House of Representatives earlier this week. Almost a year ago, I co-sponsored a bill in the House known as the “Putting First Responders First Act.” The purpose of that bill was to help police, fire and EMS personnel who are injured in the line of duty. Under existing law, if a first responder is injured on the job and is unable to work,…
