Vote gives firefighters the boot

Representatives unanimously Thursday approved allowing Minnesota firefighters to use their boots to collect funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and other charities.

Firefighters in some communities for years have held out their boots at intersections, asking motorists to throw in their donations. But many cities banned the practice, citing safety and liability concerns.

The bill that passed Thursday allows full-time firefighters to solicit charitable funds via their boots while on duty.
