      Cancer Presumption Updates

      APRIL 20, 2016

      The House Appropriations Committee just approved 3 million to fund our cancer presumption fund!!!!! We now have both the senate and house approving the same amount for next year's budget. Now they both have to give final approval in the floor and then on to the governor. Another big step forward to finally protecting our fire fighters.  See story here.


      The Michigan Senate voted 37-0 to fund the First Responders Presumption Law.  The bill will now move to the House for their vote. Please contact your Senator and thank them for supporting the funding. Please contact your Representative and ask them to provide funding for the First Responders Presumed Coverage Fund.
