Brothers & Sisters,
I have good news to share regarding the Firefighters & Children’s Health Protection Act (SF 1215). We’ve secured a hearing date in the House Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee. The committee is the last hurdle to getting the bill on the floor. Once this bill is on the House Floor its is very likely to pass so…THIS IS HUGE FOR OUR BILL AND WE NEED EVERYONE THAT CAN MAKE IT TO BE THERE! Please encourage your memberships to attend, too. The conference room seats about 100 and we need to fill it!
Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee
Date: Monday, May 11th, 2015
When: 10:00 am (Sharp)
Where: Basement Hearing Room, State office Building, 100 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Blvd, Saint Paul
Attire: Anything that has your department on it.
Our bill is the only one on the agenda and will be heard right away, so please be early. To park near the State Office Building you’ll need to use one of the pay lots or take your chances in the Sears or Kelly Inn lots.
There are 12 Republicans and 8 Democrats on the committee. All the Democrats will vote for it and we have good support among the Republicans but we need to keep them honest. If you have members living in the following Republican districts, please have them call and email their representative and ask them to support SF 1215 on Monday. Let them know you're a firefighter. Also, please encourage your members, friends, and family to call these legislators and ask them to support it.
