Our firefighters and first responders are real life superheroes. These men and women regularly risk their own personal well being to serve their community. I support expanding benefits and coverage for our first responders to ensure that they have the medical care they need for injuries or illnesses incurred from their work.
Gov. Larry Hogan is pushing similar legislation in Maryland, and I applaud his efforts. We have a duty to care for the people who so selflessly protect us.
