Sen. Griffo met with volunteer firefighters for ceremony celebrating Governor Cuomo’s signature of the New York State Volunteer Firefighter Gap Coverage Cancer Disabilities Benefits Act. Griffo, who sponsored the legislation in the Senate, fought for the passage of the law, which extends the existing Volunteer Firefighters’ Benefit Law to cover all instances of melanoma, as well as cancer of the lung, prostate, breast, lymphatic, hematological, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. The bill also had several co-sponsors in the Senate and Assembly. See story here.
