TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued the following statement on the passage of Senate Bill 1092 by Senator Aaron Bean and Representative Elizabeth Fetterhoff. The legislation, which now heads to Governor Ron DeSantis for signature, builds on CFO and State Fire Marshal Patronis’ cancer prevention initiative to protect Florida’s firefighters.

This meaningful legislation helps provide the vital equipment, training, and supplies to mitigate firefighter exposure to cancer-causing contaminants. I thank our bill sponsors, Senator Aaron Bean and Representative Elizabeth Fetterhoff, for championing this critical legislation to protect these heroes from this deadly disease.”
