Conn. House approves bill to extend Works's Comp to firefighters, police with PTSD

Under a bill gaining final legislative approval last night in the Connecticut House, Police officers and firefighters may be eligible to receive limited workers’ compensation benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder caused in the line of duty.  Bethel Representative Raghib Allie-Brennan cosponsored the bill, which also calls for a review of expanding the assistance to emergency medical services and Department of Correction employees who might not otherwise be eligible. The legislation previously passed in the Senate and Governor Lamont is expected to sign it into law.
