HB 4056

House Bill 4056

We’re working this bill to correct a gap in benefits for families of fallen or disabled officers. Because of inconsistencies between the rules for the Public Safety Memorial Fund, the Higher Education Coordinating Commission, and federal benefits, some families are missing out on assistance for higher education. Representative Andy Olson (R-Albany) and Representative Brad Witt (D-Clatskanie) introduced this bill and have been working with families of fallen officers to make sure these oversights are fixed. Representative Jeff Barker is the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee where the bill is being heard and has made this a priority.  A bipartisan remedy is in the works to close the gap, and ensure all families of fallen or disabled officers get what they need to send their children to college.
