State lawmakers are considering a plan to save the Central Coventry Fire District.

Earlier this year, a judge ordered the liquidation of the fire district after it went bankrupt. The order mandates that the district close by May 16. That means 44 firefighters and four administrators would lose their jobs.

But a Senate committee on Tuesday approved a bill that would establish a budget commission to save the district, according to WJAR-TV.

District firefighters support the plan, but the board does not, WJAR reported.

The bill is now being considered by a House committee.

Mad Hatter: It seems to me that the under educated here forget that there is another branch of government involved there and that is the Judiciary Branch . Then there is the ever present "law enforcement branch who can easily swoop in here from out of town similar to what they did to their boss Gordon Fox .
