ICYMI: Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-CA-24) and my firefighters bill passed last week. Firefighters suffer higher risk of cancer because of the smoke and toxic fumes they encounter while on duty. We need to support our firefighters who protect us.

Last week, Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-CA-24) and I passed H.R. 2499, the Federal Firefighters Fairness Act. Creating the presumption that federal firefighters who become disabled by serious diseases while on duty, ensures they receive treatment and benefits that would normally not be covered.

From Rep. Crow, representing Colorado

Federal firefighters are leaving their jobs due to low pay, and officials estimate some areas in the West could be 75% understaffed this year. I'm co-leading a bipartisan, bicameral push to urge the Administration to keep communities safe by boosting firefighter pay and benefits.

Our firefighters are on the front lines protecting Colorado families as they battle the wildfires that have devastated our communities.

Proud to work with friends like Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA-45) & Rep. Joe Neguse (D-CO-2) to ensure our firefighters get the pay and benefits they deserve.

It was a big week in DC! We attended a ceremony with @POTUS and @VP on extending broadband to communities across the US and passed critical legislation to support survivors of our nation’s nuclear legacy and support our federal firefighters. 1/2

We also met with advocates and policymakers from NM and DC, advanced tribal water legislation in Committee and marched to protect our reproductive rights. This weekend we’re back in NM for a jam-packed agenda back home then back for another busy week in DC. Grateful to serve! 2/2
