State Rep. Dom Costa, D-Allegheny, on May 29, 2015, discussed legislation that would exempt volunteer emergency responders from paying fees that total more than $47 for state and federal background clearances. Costa was joined by fellow Allegheny Democratic Reps. Dan Deasy, Bill Kortz, Harry Readshaw, and Paul Costa, as well as volunteer firefighters and emergency responders at Evergreen Volunteer Fire Department. Costa said that the financial burden on volunteers was an unintended consequence of changes to the state’s child abuse laws and that at least one bill in the House of Representatives, H.B. 1081, would begin to right that wrong.
