Name: Will New Orleans Firefighters See Funds From American Rescue Plan Act?
Description: The city of New Orleans has been forced to take out a line of credit to avoid emergency medical responder layoffs. Advocate for New Orleans firefighters now! President Biden will soon sign into law a bill to provide states with funds to offset lost tax revenue.
