Pennsylvania HouseBill 1768 - Cancer Presumption

932 Signatures Goal: 1,000

To: Pennsylvania State Senator John R. Gordner We, the undersigned, support Presumptive Cancer Legislative Pennsylvania HouseBill 1768. We believe this bill should be brought out of committee and put onto the floor for a vote by the Pennsylvania State Senate in September 2008. We believe holding this bill in committee is an injustice to all Pennsylvania Fire Fighters, both career and volunteer. By signing this petition, we are expressing our deep concern over this matter.

Description of Pennsylvania HouseBill 1768 This presumptive cancer legislative bill covers both Pennsylvania Career & Volunteer Fire Fighters if they are diagnosed with cancer that leads to temporary or permanent total or partial disability or death. It is \"presumed\" the cancer is work related and the diagnosed Fire Fighter will be covered by Workers Compensation through the local municipality in which they serve. The local municipality shall have the burden of proving that the fire fighter\'s active duty was not a major cause of the fire fighter\'s cancer.
