Oppose SB 3: Talking Points
The following fire service organization's oppose the bill: Professional Firefighters Association of LA, Louisiana Fire Chief's Association and the Louisiana State Fireman's Association.
SB-3 by Senator Peacock reduces retirement benefits to new firefighters and this disparity will negatively effect recruitment and retention of firefighters.
SB-3 will negatively effects volunteer and career fire departments ability to recruit and retain needed personnel. Many volunteer fire departments rely on career firefighters to supplement their ranks.
If a firefighter dies in the line of duty or is disabled the family will receive a lesser benefit if they do not have 30 years of service
The Firefighters Retirement System Board of Trustees did not ask for this change.
Use the talking points to contact the House Retirement Committee to OPPOSE SB 3!
