Update: Firefighters Residency Bill
On Feb. 27th the Local Government Committee voted down the bill that would have allowed City Firefighters to move out of the City by a vote of 8-3. On an interesting note 5 Republicans joined three of the Democrats on the Committee in voting "no". The bill is currently dead but could and probably will be resurrected in the form of an amendment on the House Floor. Many of the Committee members had nothing to gain and lots to lose by there "no" vote. They should be commended for recognizing the importance of the City's charter and doing the right thing.
