WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today commended the Senate’s unanimous passage of the Fallen Heroes Flag Act (S. 2755). Sen. Moran was a sponsor of the legislation, which honors fallen first responders by providing their immediate family members with American flags flown over the United States Capitol.
“Law enforcement officers, firefighters, members of rescue squads and ambulance crews, and public safety officers are the everyday heroes of our communities,” Sen. Moran said. “We owe much gratitude to those killed in the line of duty, and I was proud to sponsor and support this legislation, which gives us a chance to demonstrate our appreciation to those who have served and sacrificed for the safety of others.”
The legislation, introduced by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) now awaits consideration in the U.S. House of Representatives.
