Marriage

Did I fool you into thinking that this would be a political post?

Sorry, no such luck. Just wanting to point out an inconsistency I came across while skimming the DC Code regarding public sector workers’ compensation. (Not injured on the job. Putting together some information about DCHR.) DC Code 1-623.01, definitions:

(9) The term “child” means one who at the time of the death of the employee is under 18 years of age or over that age and incapable of self-support, and includes stepchildren, adopted children and posthumous children, but does not include married children.

(10) The term “grandchild” means one who at the time of the death of the employee is under 18 years of age or over that age and incapable of self-support.

Notice: the definition of “child” excludes married children. The definition of “grandchild” does NOT exclude married grandchildren.

Any thoughts as to why?
