CLEAT throws support behind bill to raise survivor benefits

Posted by  March 16, 2015

hb 1278

State Rep. Bryan Hughes, Amanda Hurst and Charley Wilkison

CLEAT was in the Capitol on Monday show support for legislation that would double the state’s payments to survivors of law enforcement officers who die in the line of duty.

Under House Bill 1278 by state Rep. Bryan Hughes, the payment to an officer’s surviving spouse, children or parents would be raised to $500,000 from the present payment of $250,000. The bill has deep, bipartisan support in the House. It was  heard in the House Pensions Committee on Monday.

State Sen. Eddie Lucio is carrying similar legislation in the Senate. The measure would take effect Sept. 1 and would also apply to firefighters.

Before the hearing, CLEAT Executive Director Charley Wilkison met with Hughes and with Amanda Hurst, whose husband Justin Hurst, a Texas game warden, was killed in the line of duty in 2007. Hurst’s killer was sentenced to death.
