Markell says a bill he signed on Wednesday allows the state to pay for health care coverage of dependent children of safety and law enforcement workers who died in the line of duty after August 20th, 2009.
"House Bill 158 represents one small token of respect and appreciation to show our officers and their families that we truly value what they mean to our state," Markell says. "It shows that we understand that when everyone else flees a dangerous scene, they run into harmâ€™s way."
