SB 54

Tom Facey
Require worker's compsenation coverage for volunteer firefighters


  1. "I really don't see why counties need to be involved with this. It seems that each fire district should be given the capability of using the levy authority rather than county commissioners."

    Linda Stoll

  2. This doesn't make any sense at all. I agree Fire District's should have workers comp insurance, but to collect it as a levy on County Taxes and place it one big bowl for all to share? Whay should Clinton taxpayers be subsidizing Frenchtown Fire Fighters? Rather than have the County collect for all why don't each of the affected Fire Districts be given levy authority especially for the cost of workers comp coverage and let them purchase and manage their own policies. The management of a workers comp and safety program is as much if not a bigger issue than the cost. The County is not equipped to provide such services.
