In addition, the Senate said they don’t have the funds to pay these firefighters that risked their lives.Fitzgerald said, “We let their offices know that we have a wake on Friday and a funeral on Saturday. Others of our members are in hospice care, and still others in a terminal stage of cancer. We deal with this all the time. They are playing politics and playing games. It’s a lot of silliness.”
