Bi-partisan Group of Senators Introduce U.S. Fire Administration Reauthorization Legislation

On March 21, a bipartisan group of Senators and members of the Homeland Security Committee introduced the United States Fire Administration Reauthorization Act of 2012. The bill, authored by Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT)., Susan Collins (R-ME), Tom Carper (D-DE)., John McCain (R-AZ), and Scott Brown (R-MA), would renew funding for the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA).

“I’d like to thank Senators Lieberman, Collins, Carper, McCain, and Brown for introducing this important piece of legislation,” said NVFC Chairman Philip C. Stittleburg. “The long-term health of USFA and the National Fire Academy are critical to the fire service, and this bill helps to ensure that they are able to continue their mission.”
