Minimum Wage for Firefighters Bill Approved

Baton Rouge -- A bill that would ensure a minimum wage salary for firefighters made it out of a Senate committee today.

Senate Bill 549 would make sure firefighters are paid no less than minimum wage by the municipalities that employ them.

State Senator Rick Gallott is the author of the bill.

It now makes its way to the full senate.

If approved by the full legislature, the measure would go into effect on August 1 of this year.
