The Fire Police Fairness Act has not been introduced in the current congress. Normally, a bill such as this would be passed in omnibus legislation by agreement between various members who want a special bill passed. Since Congress and the Presidency is dominated by one party, it is unlikely that any omnibus legislation will be introduced. In short, because there are fire police in only 14 or so states, there is not sufficient support to pass the bill without a negotiation. Senator Toomey has not seen it necessary to support us.
