More than 100 Wisconsin firefighters and emergency responders lobbied for a bill Wednesday that they say will save lives.
The bill would remove barriers for public safety officers to get worker’s compensation for post-traumatic stress disorder.
Because of a 1974 Supreme Court decision, to get worker’s compensation, public safety officers must demonstrate a PTSD diagnosis based on extraordinary stress above what is usually experienced by others on the job.
