HOUSE SUBCOMMITTEE DISCUSSES RAISING FIRE CERTIFICATION FEES PAID BY CITIES

On February 16, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Budget Articles I, IV, and V met to hear testimony on various state agencies, including the Texas Commission on Fire Protection (TCFP). 

During the hearing, a member of the subcommittee asked TCFP representatives about potentially raising the $35 fee paid by cities for each firefighter certification application as a means of generating revenue. 

The TCFP representative responded with a refreshing proposal that would decrease the amount that cities are required to pay in certification fees.  To view the brief exchange, go to http://www.wwwebinars.com/LUFeb/AppSubComm.swf.
