SCR1033: SUPPLEMENTAL DEATH BENEFITS; SURCHARGE

The 2022 general election ballot is to carry the question of whether to amend state statute to increase the surcharge on every fine, penalty and forfeiture imposed and collected by the courts for criminal offenses and on specified civil penalties to eight percent, from seven percent, and to deposit the additional one percent in the newly established State Supplemental Benefit Fund. Monies in the Fund must be used to provide supplemental death benefits to the surviving spouse or dependents of an "eligible person" (defined as specified law enforcement and first responders) who is "killed in the line of duty" (defined). The supplemental death benefit amount is the difference of $1 million and the sum of amounts received from any onetime death benefit paid by any governmental entity. The total amount of supplemental death benefits that can be paid for a single incident where multiple eligible persons are killed in the line of duty is capped at $10 million.
