Timilty advocates for public safety OT
State Sen. Walter F. Timilty, D-Milton, is a co-sponsor of a bill that will provide emergency assistance for municipal public safety overtime, in this COVID-19 State of Emergency.
“In order to help those who help us, this critical legislation will channel funds from the Commonwealth, through a grant program to address overtime pay for our public safety personnel who are bravely serving on the front lines of this pandemic,” Timilty said.
This legislation, Senate Bill 2602, An Act providing emergency assistance for municipal public safety overtime, requires the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security to establish a grant program to provide funding for cities and towns for the overtime costs of municipal police officers, municipal law enforcement personnel with arrest powers, municipal personnel with authority to enforce public health regulations, members of the fire department, and emergency medical technicians.
