The Police Officer and Firefighter Survivor Tuition Act
PA 127 of 2021 was my first bill signed into law and it ensures that any child of a fallen police officer or firefighter can go to college in Michigan tuition-free. These brave men and women made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe and it’s the least we can do to support them.
This access is to any child of a police officer or firefighter who died in the line of duty – regardless of current life circumstance. The old version had a 400 percent of the poverty line to qualify for it. And this bill removes that.
