UPDATE: The bill was passed.

 

As you may know the Senate unanimously passed Senate Bill 829 in August to reauthorize the AFG and SAFER Fire Acts. It has since been held up in the House of Representatives and must be passed by the House by January 2. If not passed these tow grant programs will no longer be.

We are working with other Fire Service Organizations to get this completed. However, our window is short. Please see the attached letter for those in the House who have signed on. If your local representative has not signed on we ask that you contact them as soon as possible and ask that they support moving this forward in the House. We have talking point resources on the Website under the Advocacy age or feel free to utilize the attached letter for talking points as you reach out to your legislators.

Thanks for you outreach to get this legislation passed in the House.
