Firefighter's going independent?

There's a bill in the Nevada legislature, ASB 278, that will change the way the firefighters do business. If it passes, city and county fire departments can create regional agencies.  In other words, they could operate like Las Vegas Metro Police. This would mean an elected fire chief and no oversight from city or county councils and commissions.  We'll talk to the bill's author, Democratic Assemblyman Richard Segerblom and Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak and Reno Mayor Bob Cashell.
