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.

 

 

 

These heroes passed away protecting us and this is the least we can do for their families. And I am proud to say that my colleagues across the ails joined hands with my fellow democrats to pass this historic legislation. This bill has already provided support to families in our community, and as a result, the Police Officers Association of Michigan named me their Legislator of the Year.
