President Trump signs Brown's bill to establish firefighter's cancer registry

WFMJ

President Trump has signed Senator Sherrod Brown's bipartisan legislation to establish a cancer registry for firefighters into law. 

The Firefighter Cancer Registry Act requires the CDC to create and maintain a voluntary registry to collect data on cancer incidence among firefighters. 

The data collected will be used with existing state data to better assess and prevent cancer in firefighters. 

The Senate passed Brown's bill in May.
