Houston City Council: No Firefighter Layoff's

Hundreds of Houston firefighters get to keep their jobs, after all.

On Wednesday, The City Council voted to rescind the firefighter layoffs that were issued back in April.

Layoffs were implemented after voters approved Prop B, which was a pay parity plan.

Recently, a district court Judge ruled the plan unconstitutional, which meant Prop B was completely invalid.

Firefighters say they plan to appeal.

Mayor Sylvester Turner called the ruling "tremendous" and "positive," saying that there won't be a need to lay off anyone, including 47 municipal workers, 220 firefighters, and 67 cadets if the ruling stands.
