Alright I need read my notes. Senator Randleman asked me to present the bill in committee, this is local bill that would allow the town of Wilsbur's firemen to take a 150% of the set amount for the pension fund each month, the current I believe is $170 that they can pull down, this will happen to take out 50 % more than that, we have spoof this from the town council and associate it to local bill and I appreciate your support.
