Northern Tier (WENY) - Pennsylvania volunteer fire and ambulance companies are one step closer to getting more money out of loans thanks to a new bill sponsored by Northern Tier Representative Matt Baker.
     
The Volunteer Loan Assistance Program makes it so financially challenged volunteer emergency service companies can buy life-saving equipment and make updates to facilities. The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has unanimously approved legislation. It would also allow companies that merge or consolidate to hold up to ten loans for a period of ten years. The legislation goes next to the state Senate for consideration.
