Trump signs law that will aid wounded Capi­tol Po­lice of­fi­cers

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO - — S.A. Miller

Pres­i­dent Trump on Fri­day signed into law the Wounded Of­fi­cers Re­cov­ery Act, al­low­ing the U.S. Capi­tol Po­lice Me­mo­rial Fund to pro­vide fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to Capi­tol Po­lice of­fi­cers in­jured in the line of duty.

The bill would ex­tend aid to of­fi­cers David Bai­ley and Crystal Griner, who were in­jured when a gun­man opened fire in June on Repub­li­can law­mak­ers at a char­ity base­ball prac­tice.

The fund pre­vi­ously pro­vided fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance only to the fam­i­lies of of­fi­cers killed in the line of duty.
