The 2021 Alabama Legislative session adjourned on Monday, May 17th. Unfortunately, House Bill 212 did not get a vote on the Senate floor. This bill will provide PTSD benefits to first responders. The bill was introduced by Representative Matt Simpson who worked closely with the FOP, County Commissioners and League of Municipalities to make this benefit a reality. We did get further than we have in the past and are hopeful for the bill to be reintroduced at the next session.
Thank you to our legislative committee members as well as all of our members who emailed, called and wrote letters to our Representatives and Senators.
