Lawmakers in New Hampshire just passed a bill that would give the state’s teachers a $100,000 death benefit if they’re “killed in the line of duty.”
The bill, HB1415, would give $100,000 to the family of not just teachers but any full-time or part-time public school employee killed in an act of violence while working in the state’s schools, including community colleges and universities.
A spokesman for New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu said the governor will sign the bill.
One of the bill’s sponsors said she wants the families of teachers and staff to be taken care of financially in case the unthinkable happens.
