What's Happening in the #PAHouse

The House returns to session with a key focus on helping address the challenges mounting against firefighters, emergency medical technicians and other first responders. Ninety percent of fire companies in Pennsylvania rely on volunteers. As their ranks continue to shrink, many communities are left in a crisis of wondering who will respond to an emergency? This week, the House will vote on nearly 20 bills related to this crisis.
