As you all know by now we have a Cancer Presumptive Bill enacted. I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank everyone involved both past and present who’ve helped get this bill passed. This bill has been a collaboration of over twenty years to accomplish.
Our bill has sat in the legislators hands most of those twenty years. It hasn’t been until recently when we ramped up our presents at the Capitol and became politically active. This shows how getting involved can accomplish what had seemed to be the impossible. Looking to the future we can’t sit back and take for granted the work accomplished thus far. We need to continue to support those you’ve supported us during this endeavor.
I attribute much of this to us financially supporting legislators and our legislative conferences by bringing our members to the capitol and move through the halls talking to your legislators, and also the work back home in the districts our members continued to perform.
I know I sound like a broken record, however, this should indicate the need to continue to build the PPFFA Pac-Fund. I urge all locals to start a PPFFA Pac-Fund check off and give the association the resources to continue to have a seat at the table with our legislators.
Again thank you to all our members, the 195th Session of the General Assembly, the Governor, and our legislative team.
David W. Schmidt, Secretary/Treasurer
