N.J. bill would increase EMS donation caps by $55K

The annual contribution cap for ambulance and rescue squads and volunteer first-aid groups would go from $70,000 to $125,000

TRENTON, N.J. — The State Senate passed a bill Monday that would let counties and municipalities contribute more money each year to ambulance and rescue squads and volunteer first-aid groups, NorthJersey.com reported.

Currently, each can annually contribute $70,000 a year but also can give an additional $35,000 if a company “experiences extraordinary need.” The bill would raise these amounts to $125,000 and $70,000, respectively.

If the Assembly passes the measure, it can go to the governor to be signed into law.
