Waiver of tuition for children and spouses of certain public safety personnel. Amends the provisions of the Code allowing the spouse and children of certain deceased public safety personnel to attend a Virginia state-supported institution of higher education free of tuition and fees. If the spouse or children are entitled to benefits under the Line of Duty Act, then they are also entitled to the tuition waiver. The tuition waiver program is currently drawn more narrowly than the Line of Duty Act. Read the Bill »
