2013 Senate Bill 211: Establish firefighters’ cancer presumption (Senate Roll Call 311)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 32 to 6 in the Senate on May 21, 2014, to establish a presumption that certain types of cancer contracted by non-volunteer firefighters arose out of and in the course of employment for purposes of granting workers compensation benefits. The burden of proof would be on the employer to show the disease was due to the individual being a smoker, or to nonwork-related causation or specific incidents. This would all be contingent on the legislature appropriating money for the benefits.
