Governor Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 214 (Firefighter Cancer Benefit Program) into law today. This bill is the culmination of years of effort and testament to the collaborative efforts fostered by the Colorado Professional Fire Fighters, the Colorado State Fire Chiefs and the Special Districts Association.
Today SB-214 passed out of the House on a bipartisan vote 65-0. After passing out of the Senate earlier this session, our bill now heads to Governor Hickenlooper with unanimous bipartisan support.
This is testament to the continued collaborative efforts and hard work from everyone involved over the last two years.
