H. Rept. 117-123: Honoring Civil Servants Killed in the Line of Duty Act, Report to Accompany S. 3487, Including Cost Estimate of the Congressional Budget Office, June 22, 2022   [open pdf - 478KB]

From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 3487, the 'Honoring Civil Servants Killed in the Line of Duty Act,' establishes a new section of title 5, United States Code, to provide death gratuity payments to the surviving family of federal employees who die from injury or exposure to disease in the line of duty. Current law provides only $10,000 in compensation following a death in the line of duty and $800 toward funeral expenses. The death gratuity established in this bill would be $100,000, adjusted each year for inflation. Compensation for funeral expenses would be increased to $8,800. Additionally, the bill authorizes an emergency supplemental appropriation for death gratuities, if needed in the event of a natural disaster, act of terrorism, or other incident."
