The 2019 Bill Lundy Legislative Conference is taking place this week at the Arkansas State Capital. At the direction of the Arkansas Professional Firefighter political director Mattew Stallings. Memebers from around the state were updated on issues that can impact firefighters. Cancer Legislation like HB1299 sponsored by Rep. Nicole Clowney. This could help those who get occupational cancer a bit more time to fight the disease. Instead of requiring a firefighter with cancer to return to work or get fired. HB1345 would address issues with occupational cancer and retirement. HB1614 sponsored by Representative Hawks, this would provide firefighters a bill of rights. Police officers already have one. Active and retired APFF members lobbied the Arkansas House and Senate.
