December 20, 2021 Update on Build Back Better Act.

This past weekend the U.S. Senate concluded their work for the year. Since returning from the Thanksgiving break, the Senate had been negotiating between members of the Democratic majority and with the White House on the Build Back Better Act (BBB Act). Although Senate leadership had expressed a desire to have a Senate vote on the BBB Act before Christmas, an agreement to do so was not reached prior to the Senate recessing for the year. At this time the situation regarding the BBB Act continues to be very fluid and uncertain.

The Public Safety Staffing Crisis

Fire departments across the nation, including full-time, part-time and volunteer agencies, are not able to respond with the required units due to staffing shortages. They are not able to meet National Fire Protection Association Standards, and even with mutual aid assistance they are still often too shorthanded to properly fight a working structure fire.
