State Law Gives Children Of Slain Fargo Police Officer Free Tuition


Here’s some happy news: Existing state law would give the children of slain Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer free tuition and fees at an institution of their choosing in the North Dakota University¬†System.

Here’s the relevant bit of law from the North Dakota Century Code:


Rep. Blair Thoreson, a Republican who represents District 44 in Fargo which is where the shooting which took Officer Moszer’s life occurred, called the law to my attention.

“Tim Flakoll is the one who did the research on it,” he told me. Flakoll is the Senator from District 44 and also a Republican.

“Yesterday¬†morning we met after what happened in our neighborhood,” Thoreson told me. “Flakoll contacted Legislative Council for the research and we found this law.

“It was passed several legislative sessions ago,” he added. “If Officer Moszer’s children decide to go to an institution of higher education in North Dakota they get their tuition and fees paid.”

That’s great news. As I noted earlier today, SAB readers have also helped raise over $30,000 for Officer Moszer’s family. You can click here if you want to donate.
