Why should they be covered for ANY cancer? Why should the municipality be liable for someone who chews and gets oral cancer? Who drinks and gets liver cancer? Who is obese and eats fattening foods all the time and gets colon cancer?

That's the real problem with the bill, there are too many types of cancer that have no bearing on ones occupation to cover ALL of them.

'blighted structures' aka buildings that the boro wants to make into parking lots, isn't this another name for the 'imminent domain' law?

Then why should they VOLUNTEER anymore?

That makes sense how?

They shouldn't volunteer because the municipality should be responsible for ANY type of cancer they get?

As many as two-thirds of cancer cases are caused by lifestyles (eating, smoking, drinking, lack of excercise) not volunteering.

You need to actually research what is being discussed, why the bill is flawed and facing opposition.
