To All Directors/Legislative Directors,
As you are aware, the 9/11 Presumptive Disability Law has a 25-year “sunset” clause.
Senator Savino’s office has formulated proposed legislation which would eliminate that expiration date. Attached is a copy of the proposed legislation in bill draft form (Legislative Bill Drafting Commission # 14842-02-2).
While we are confident that this draft encompasses all those public employees included in the law, we urge each individual member unit to have their counsel review the proposal to ensure that none of their members have been inadvertently omitted. Needless to say, time is of the essence, so please do this as expeditiously as practicable!
