Re: “Dying Arkansas firefighter fights to collect stalled pension

Sometimes its difficult to be say you are proud to be an Arkansan. It sure looks like 40 states have already looked at the factual causal link between being a firefighter and contracting cancer and have legislatively done the right thing. Obviously there is a mountain of research findings currently existing (and article sure makes it look like LOPFI put the enitre burden of the proof of the causal link on Mr. Planchon), and LOPFI is somehow struggling through the process when there is such a great urgency for the needs and dignity for this firefighter. I sure can't understand, does LOPFI think it will be the first to determine no causal link? This is really a troubling state of affairs as even the legislators seemed to have turned their backs on the right thing to do. Work a dangerous job for public safety and the get denied the promised benefits when you couldn't need them more.
