Dear MCVFA Members:
Would you each please contact your State Representative or Representatives (split towns) and your State Senator and ask them to co-sponsor and support H.2508 and S.1594. These are the two bills to create a fire station replacement grant program. The sponsors are Representatives James J. O’Day and Lindsay N. Sabadosa and Senators Ann M. Gobi and Susannah M. Whipps. Each bill only has three co-sponsors and we need more to have any hope these will move.
Please send your Senator and Representative the attached Testimony supporting the bills. Tell them yours needs and about the need of other departments in your area.
I think if we can get a dozen more sponsors, we get this legislation on the radar screen.
Chairman, MCVFA Legislative Committee
Senate Bill: S.1594 – An Act relative to construction and rehabilitation of public safety facilities
