Yesterday, U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly and other members of the Republican or Democratic congressional baseball teams introduced the Wounded Officers Recovery Act. This bill is a companion to legislation introduced yesterday in the House by Reps. Joe Barton (R-Texas) and Mike Doyle (D-Pa.). The bipartisan, bicameral bill would amend the United States Capitol Police Memorial Fund to expand eligibility to include any U.S. Capitol Police employee that has been injured in the line of duty. The fund at present only allows funds donated to be distributed to families of officers killed in the line of duty.
