Perlmutter Statement on Aurora Special Master Announcement


Location: Washington, DC

Statement released by Rep. Ed Perlmutter regarding changes to the Aurora victims' assistance process.

"Recently, the families of the victims of the terrible tragedy in Aurora expressed frustration regarding the process put into place for victims' assistance. Through no fault of anyone it was obvious the process needed to change. I am very pleased by the decision of all involved to bring in a special master, an independent arbiter who will oversee the process moving forward and the distribution of funds the way generous donors intended. Most importantly, the special master will ensure the victims and their families who are in great need of care and services receive the assistance to which they are entitled. Kenneth Feinberg has served as special master in many of our nation's most historic tragedies and his skills and character are highly respected. His commitment to this role brings instant credibility to the process in hopes of reassuring victims, their families, and all who have contributed to the recovery fund that this will be done right."
