Memo

 BILL NUMBER:  S5114A

TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend chapter 606 of the laws of 2006 amending the volunteer firefighters' benefit law relating to creating a presumption relating to certain lung disabilities incurred by volunteer firefighters, in relation to the effectiveness of such chapter

PURPOSE : To extend the presumption relating to certain lung disabilities incurred by volunteer firefighters to June 30, 2015.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS : Section 1. Section 2 of chapter 606 of the laws of 2006 amending the volunteer firefighters benefit law relating to creating a presumption relating to certain lung disabilities incurred by volunteer fire fighters.

Section 2: Changes the repeal date from June 30, 2012 to June 30,2015.

JUSTIFICATION : Lung disabilities for firefighters exceed that of the average adult population. This increase is due to the proliferation of synthetic chemicals resulting in a firefighter's exposure in increasing numbers of combustion and off-gassed materials from plastics and other synthetic substances at fires. Chapter 89 of 2005 extended this presumptive evidence to career firefighters. This legislation would do the same for volunteer firefighters.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY : S.6839 of 2008, Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS : To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE : Immediately.
