Senator Mike Regan amended HB 1869 in the Senate today to include language that will provide up to 60 days of continued pay for First Responders impacted by the COVID-19 virus. This will cover our members who are listed under the Heart and Lung Act.
The bill is expected to pass the Senate tomorrow with bi-partisan support. It will then move to the House of Representatives for a vote of concurrence.
This can occur as early as tomorrow morning. The same language was unanimously passed last week by the House of Representatives under a similar bill.
Please contact your State Representative for support of this legislation and a vote of yes for HB 1869 on concurrence.
