Keisha authored and sponsored HB 54, (the Fallen Hero Bill) to support families by providing cost free tuition to the children of public safety officials disabled or killed in the line of duty. This work lead to Rep. Waites being named the 2015 Legislator of the Year by the GA State Firefighters’ Association & GA Association of Fire Chiefs. “Authoring this legislation was a very small way for me to honor the families and heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice.” Keisha consulted and worked closely with the families of fallen hero’s to ensure they had the opportunity to provide input. HB 54 passed both the House and the Senate unanimously and was signed into law by Gov. Deal in May 2016.
