(TRENTON) - An Assembly panel on Monday approved legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Annette Quijano, Valerie Vainieri Huttle and Jason O'Donnell to provide lifetime workers' compensation benefits to surviving spouses of fire and police personnel who die in the line of duty.
"These are dangerous professions with potentially deadly consequences," said Quijano (D-Union). "Police and fire personnel should have the peace of mind that their families will be provided for if they are killed in the line of duty. The work that they do and the risks they take warrants it."
