Colorado Governor Bill Ritter has set up a trust fund for family members of the Georgetown workers who were killed in the hydroelectrical plant explosion.

Ritter was in Georgetown Thursday afternoon to tour the site of the accident, and talk about the importance of helping the victim's families.

He wants to use the State's Victim’s Compensation Fund to help the victim's families who will remain in Colorado until the autopsies are complete.

Ritter also mentioned that along with a Federal and Colorado Bureau investigation, OSHA will conduct its own.
