Call to Action: AFG/SAFER Reauthorization to be Voted on Today by the House
From the NVFC
Today, November 18, H.R. 3781, the Fire Grants Reauthorization Act of 2009, is scheduled to be considered by the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill, which was introduced on October 13 by Congressman Harry Mitchell (D-AZ), along with 40 original co-sponsors, extends for five years and make changes to the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) and the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant programs. The provisions in H.R. 3791 are based on a series of policy recommendations that were agreed to by the NVFC and other national fire service organizations.

Passed today! Remember though - the dollars mean little till they are funded each year in that years budget.
On to the Senate now.
