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”.

Lawmakers consider bill to enhance firefighter training

Lawmakers consider bill to enhance firefighter training

Lawmakers in Indiana are considering a bill that would require the board of firefighting personnel standards and education to establish best practices to improve safety and health for firefighters.

S.B. 258, slated for a Friday introduction in the state Senate, would also allow the workers compensation rating bureau of Indiana to provide a premium or rate discount toward workers compensation insurance to municipalities and volunteer fire departments that implement the best practices, according to an early draft of the bill.

The bill would also permit the board of trustees of the Indiana public retirement system to provide a discount to a payment required for police officers' and firefighters' pension and disability funds to those that implement the best practices.
