N.C. Legislators Propose Scholarship Aid for Police Survivors

November 21, 2007  | 

Four North Carolina state legislators have agreed to sponsor legislation to provide full scholarships to the children of law enforcement officers, firefighters, and EMS workers killed in the line of duty.

The four Republican lawmakers told the Charlotte Observer that they chose Thanksgiving week for the announcement because the legislation was drafted to thank the state's "fallen heroes."

If the bill becomes law, children of North Carolina officers killed in the line of duty would receive full scholarships at the state's public universities or community as long as they remain in good academic standing.

We already have such legislation in Texas to take care of the educations of the children left behind by those killed in the line of duty. They should be provided for nationwide.
