  • FF's & Cancer- Benefits

    Nevada Senate approves firefighter benefits bill
    (Carson City-AP) -- A bill ensuring that firefighters who
    contract certain forms of cancer can qualify for industrial
    insurance coverage has been approved by the Nevada Senate.
    The bill ensures workers' compensation coverage for a
    firefighter with five years on the job, and was backed by a North
    Las Vegas fireman who's dying of cancer.
    William Harnedy says his claims for state benefits were delayed
    or rejected following his 2001 cancer diagnosis. He says that while
    the legislation may not help him, it would aid others in his
    situation.
    Insurers had objected to the bill at first, but backed off after
    language was added in the Senate specifying that any claim of
    on-the-job exposure to carcinogens causing cancers is rebuttable in
    court.
    The bill now returns to the Assembly for discussion of the
    amendment.

    Bill signed

    Nevada governor signs firefighter benefits bill
    br1
    CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada firefighters will be covered for
    certain forms of cancer considered occupational hazards, under a
    bill signed into law by Gov. Kenny Guinn.
    AB451 clearly states that certain cancers contracted by
    firefighters are occupational diseases covered by the state's
    insurance plans.
    Legislators considering the bill heard emotional testimony from
    former Carson City and North Las Vegas firefighter William Harnedy,
    who is dying of cancer. He told the panels that while the
    legislation may not help him, it would aid others in his situation.
    Harnedy said his claims for state benefits were delayed or
    rejected following his 2001 cancer diagnosis.
    Assemblyman John Oceguera, D-Las Vegas, who worked as a
    firefighter with Harnedy, pushed for the change, saying existing
    law was unclear.
    Insurers originally objected to the bill, but backed off after
    language was added in the Senate specifying that any claim of
    on-the-job exposure to carcinogens is rebuttable in court. The
    Assembly endorsed the Senate's amendment.
    Also signed Thursday by Guinn were:
    -AB541, which lets candidates have nicknames printed on ballots
    in order to help voters distinguish between them and their
    opponents. Also, if two candidates' names are the same or so
    similar that they'd confuse voters, the candidates' middle initials
    must be used. Any incumbents can have their names printed first and
    in bold type.
    -AB528, which states that anyone who acquires a registered voter
    list for election purposes can't sell it or use it for any reason
    outside the election.
    -SB240, which requires a house's former use as a methamphetamine
    lab to be disclosed to potential buyers. The disclosure must be
    made unless the property was completely cleaned and certified as
    safe by a governmental entity. Sellers aren't liable if they don't
    have actual knowledge that the building was formerly used to make
    the drug.
