MADISON, Wis. – Following a joint public hearing before the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Public Safety and Assembly Committee on Insurance, Attorney General Josh Kaul issued a statement in support of Senate Bill 266/Assembly Bill 300, which provides health insurance to survivors of law enforcement officers who die in the line of duty.

“We can never repay the debt we owe to officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty or to their families. But we can ensure that the family members of fallen officers don’t lose their health insurance because those officers made the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you to the members of the legislature who are working to advance this legislation,” said Attorney General Kaul.
