(NEWSER) – The committee in charge of distributing Sandy Hook donations has a distribution plan: Each victim's family would get $281,000, totaling 95% of the $7.7 million that will be given out. On top of that, families of kids who survived the classroom attacks would receive $20,000 each, and the two wounded teachers would split $150,000, the Hartford Courant reports. The plan should be settled by Monday, says a lawyer involved. The decisions follow a private meeting with families run by a former federal judge, then a public hearing last night on the matter.
