Rep. Pete King Fights for First Responders
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and I held a news conference at Ladder 25 firehouse in Manhattan to announce we are supporting The Public Safety Officers Benefits Improvement Act which will require the Dept. of Justice to post on its website WEEKLY updates for all pending claims and report to Congress every 6 months the basis for the delay for any claim not processed with one year. This legislation is supported by many police and fire organizations and I will do all that I can to get it passed in the House, as I know Sen. Gillibrand will in the Senate. Police and firefighters deserve no less.
