Health Insurance for Dependents of Public Safety Employees Killed in the Line of Duty

This petition had 1,372 supporters


Rep. Charisse Millett has introduced House Bill 66, a bill that offers major medical health care coverage to the spouses and children of employees killed in the line of duty.

Currently, if a police officer dies or is killed in the line of duty, his or her dependents’ health care coverage expires at the end of the month.

By signing this petition we respectfully ask you to consider and support House Bill 66. We further ask you to consider an amendment to include preventative, dental and vision care.

I believe the State of Alaska recognizes the importance of ensuring that police officers know their families will be taken care of in the event that they are killed in the line of duty.  Passing House Bill 66 will confirm that belief for the men and women who risk their lives every day in communities across Alaska. This bill can offer some measure of relief to families who have already suffered the ultimate loss.

We support offering health insurance to dependents of Line of Duty Deaths. We believe this health care coverage has been earned. We urge you to support House Bill 66.
