LEGISLATIVE ALERT

The Labor and Public Employees Committee will hold a Public Hearing on Tuesday, February 14, 2006 at 2:00 pm room 2A of the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. Two of our bills are scheduled to be heard.

S.B. No. 27 (RAISED) LABOR AND PUBLIC EMPLOYEES. 'AN ACT CONCERNING WORKERS' COMPENSATION BENEFITS FOR HYPERTENSION AND HEART DISEASE FOR FIREFIGHTERS', to create a presumption that injuries occurring from hypertension or heart disease while an on-duty municipal firefighter, who began employment on or after July 1, 1996, is responding to an emergency occurred in the line of duty and within the scope of the firefighter's employment.

REF. LABOR AND PUBLIC EMPLOYEES

H.B. No. 5037 (RAISED) LABOR AND PUBLIC EMPLOYEES. 'AN ACT CONCERNING WORKERS' COMPENSATION COVERAGE FOR CERTAIN OCCUPATIONAL DISEASES FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES PERSONNEL', to establish a rebuttable presumption that emergency rescue or public safety personnel who contract hepatitis, meningococcal meningitis or tuberculosis from their employment are eligible for workers' compensation benefits as long as they meet certain requirements.

REF. LABOR AND PUBLIC EMPLOYEES

I have attached the list of the Labor Committee Members along with their phone numbers. Please call the committee members and ask them to support S.B. 27 and H.B. 5037.
