About the bill
A bill to increase Federal Pell Grants for the children of fallen public safety officers, and for other purposes.
The bill’s titles are written by its sponsor.
More than 200 public safety officers — including firefighters, police officers, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) workers, and law enforcement officials — are killed or die each year in the line of duty. With a major source of parental income depleted, children of these deceased can find it difficult to pay for college, as if skyrocketing tuition costs didn’t make it difficult ...
This is the first step in the legislative process.
The bill was passed in a vote in the Senate. It goes to the House next. The vote was by Unanimous Consent so no record of individual votes was made.
Signed by the President
