Volunteer Fire Companies Getting $60M in State Money
HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Volunteer fire companies around the state will receive nearly $60 million in aid from the state. State Auditor General Eugene DePasquale announced the amount Tuesday morning. It is nearly $5 million more than last year. The money comes from a tax on fire insurance premiums purchased by Pennsylvania residents from out-of-state insurance companies.
