Governor signs 50 bills including
assistance for families with severely disabled children
SALT LAKE CITY (March 26, 2015) – Gov. Gary R. Herbert signed an additional
50 bills into law bringing the total number of bills the governor has taken
action on from the 2015 General Legislative Session to 252. That total now
includes two bills signed during the session that were omitted from
previous counts. The Legislature passed 528 bills this session, 495 of
which require action by the governor.
Among the bills signed by the governor today is HB 199, Pilot Program for
Assistance for Children .
This bill directs the Department of Health to apply for a Medicaid waiver
to cover the cost of care for children with serious disabilities and
complex medical conditions.
“Families facing challenges associated with serious disabilities and
medical conditions should be able to access the care they need without
going bankrupt,” said Gov. Herbert. “Utahns believe in helping those in
need and this bill should provide some much needed relief.”
The governor also signed SB 65, In-state Tuition for Families of Fallen
Public Safety Officers .
This bill grants in-state tuition rates to the surviving family members of
a police officer or firefighter killed in the line of duty.
“It is appropriate for our state to offer in-state tuition to those who
have lost a parent in the line of duty,” said Gov. Herbert. “Education is
critical to the economic future of these children and this policy will help
them contribute to the economic strength of our state.”
