Volunteer Firefighters Could Have To Pass Physical

Another busy day in the New Jersey Legislature.
Several bills are up for consideration today in both the Assembly and the Senate.
Among them is a measure that would let local governments and fire districts require that volunteer firefighters pass a physical before they can suit up.
A senate panel is set to debate the bill and, if it’s ultimately approved, it would take effect immediately. Meanwhile, an Assembly committee will hold a hearing that will focus on the state’s soured economy and what can be done to fix it.
They’ll hear from a panel of experts, including the state’s banking and insurance commissioner and a senior economist from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
