As was mentioned in a previous post, a bill was introduced in the Senate to try and address the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic will have on the ability of volunteers to earn LOSAP points in 2020.
Since that post, the bill was amended to include changes to Articles 11-AA and 11-AAA, which are the statutes that govern the LOSAPs for volunteer ambulance squads.
Yesterday, May 11th, an Assembly bill was introduced which mirrors the amended Senate version. We have included it at the bottom of this post for you.
Our comments on the version Senate bill were provided to the legislature and other interested parties. A condensed version will be made available soon.
In the meantime, please do not assume this bill will pass. We will continue to monitor and update you as this situation develops.
Sharing my thoughts and insights on LOSAP, and occasionally other topics.
