As the state legislative session nears an end, lawmakers continue to work through a number of bills.
Tuesday, Assembly members approved legislation that will provide cancer coverage to volunteer firefighters that paid firefighters already covered for.
It's a push we've covered for months in our New York State Exposed series. The bill would cover volunteer firefighters for certain types of cancers they are more likely to get on the job.
Paid firefighters are already covered in New York State. The bill now heads to the governor for his signature.
