State police disability pension. Authorizes the state police department (ISP) to establish disability expense reimbursements and disability pensions for employee beneficiaries who incur disabilities: (1) in the line of duty; and (2) not in the line of duty. Authorizes the ISP to seek rulings from the Internal Revenue Service as to the federal tax treatment for the line of duty disability benefits. Provides for a waiver of tuition and mandatory fees at any state supported college, university, or technical school for the child or spouse of a regular, paid ISP police employee who has been permanently and totally disabled by a catastrophic personal injury that was sustained in the line of duty and permanently prevents the employee from performing any gainful work. Provides a disability pension in lieu of the regular disability pension to a regular paid police employee of the state police department who is permanently and totally disabled by a catastrophic personal injury sustained in the line of duty after January 1, 2001 that prevents the employee from performing any gainful work. Provides that the pension is equal to the employees regular salary at the commencement of the disability. Provides that the pension must be increased at a rate equal to any salary increases that the employee would have received had the employee remained in active service. (The introduced version of this bill was prepared by the pension management oversight commission.)
