Prop B raises to Houston firefighters and officers remain on hold

A temporary restraining order stopping the Houston firefighter pay raise has been extended.

For now, the city will not have to pay firefighters equal pay to Houston police.

In November, voters approved the proposition that would give Houston firefighters a raise by virtue of parity pay.

HPD is also seeking a temporary injunction to stop it, until a lawsuit is settled.
