BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Bill calls for study of firefighter cancer relief benefits

Connecticut capitol

Connecticut lawmakers have passed legislation to form a task force to study cancer relief benefits for firefighters.

S.B. 141, which unanimously passed the Senate on Thursday, would require the establishment of a committee to examine whether to establish a program providing financial support to firefighters with cancer. The committee would be required to study the feasibility of such a program and its impact on workers compensation and submit a report of its findings to the state by Jan. 1, 2022.

The bill will go to the House for consideration.
