Re: “Dying Arkansas firefighter fights to collect stalled pension

What this whole mess illustrates is the glaring fact that Arkansas needs to adopt "Presumptive Legislation" like 40 other states have already done. People in our line of work are far more likely to contract certain diseases. We understand that but it doesn't mean we should go without.

I worked here at SFD with Bud for 20+ years. Last legislative session, myself and other firefighters made a trip to Little Rock and testified on Bud's behalf. We also brought expert witnesses for testimony on the matter. What was most notable was the absolute indifference expressed by the Senators who heard the testimony. Cecile Bledsoe had tears running down her face but said she just couldn't support us.
