Newtown, CT First Selectman Patricia Llodra: Approve Senate Bill 823 re: Newtown first responders

This bill will expand the worker's compensation coverage in Connecticut to all individuals diagnosed with PTSD as a result of witnessing the death or maiming of another human being whose death or maiming was caused by an intentional act of violence of another person- regardless if there was any physical injury or use of deadly force.  We request this bill be passed on behalf of the first responders who were involved with the Sandy Hook shootings on 12/14/12 but also for any future responders who find themselves in situations that bring about PTSD.
