Today, Assemblyman Brian Miller (R,I-New Hartford) met with volunteer firefighter and Believe 271 Foundation founder Brian McQueen, and his wife, after voting to pass legislation A.711-B that will provide enhanced disability benefits to volunteer firefighters who develop certain forms of cancer due to their service.

“This was important legislation to help our volunteer firefighters, and I am proud to be part of passing it,” said Miller. “These men and women are heroes, and I am grateful to know they are on call and ready to rush into action at a moment’s notice. They deserve to know we have their backs and they deserve a sense of security knowing they will have the necessary health benefits to fight life threatening diseases.”
