Under existing law, state tuition assistance is available for a

dependent of a prisoner of war or military personnel missing in action, a
dependent of a person who died or was permanently disabled while on
duty as a Colorado National Guardsman, and a dependent of any person
who has been permanently disabled or killed while acting as a police
officer, sheriff, or other law enforcement officer or firefighter
(dependents) who are not eligible for federal educational benefits.
The bill clarifies that a dependent who is eligible for state tuition
assistance and federal educational benefits pursuant to the federal Public
Safety Officers' Benefits Act may receive the state tuition assistance
prior to receiving the federal benefit. The state tuition assistance available
to a dependent is reduced by the amount of any federal educational
benefit provided to the dependent.
