BIG SOuTH FORK BEEKEEPERS Will meet Friday March 9th, 7:00 pm at the Mc- Creary County Extension Office. passed by the full Senate now moves to the House for consideration. House Bill 126, which would make it a felony to intentionally view child pornography, was passed unanimously in the House this week. This bill closes a potential loophole created by cur- rent laws that criminalize only possession of such images. The House also passed legislation to create a pilot program that would open up some family court cases to the public, including dependency, neglect, and abuse cases that are presently closed. The program would still allow courts great discre- tion in deciding whether to open or close particular proceedings, but the goal is to ultimately bring greater transparency to this aspect of the judicial process. In House committees this week, House Bill 350 unanimously passed the Judiciary Committee. It would create new felony crimes and increase penalties for human traf- ficking. There have been at least 130 known vic- tims of human trafficking in Kentucky. House Bill 390 also passed committee this week and will go to the full House for considera- tion. It would make the theft of copper and other valuable metals less lu- crative by preventing metal recyclers from pro- viding immediate cash for those metals. Instead, it would require anyone selling such metals to be mailed a check after showing proof of owner- ship. Among bills that were filed this week was House Bill 413, introduced by Dr. Bob DeWeese, the House Republican Cau- cus Chairman. House Bill 413 would provide for an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution Legislative Update State Rep. Sara Beth Gregory that would suspend leg- islative pay in the event the legislature does not fulfill its constitutional responsibility to adopt a balanced budget. I co- sponsored a similar bill during the 2011 session, and I continue to support this legislation. Also, House Republican Whip Danny Ford intro- duced House Bill 418, which would require county attorneys to post a statement on the deed of any property that has been used in the manu- facturing of methamphet- amine. The statement could be removed from the deed after certifica- tion of a clean-up of the house or structure has been completed. I have signed on as a co-sponsor of this legislation, which would help protected un- suspecting purchasers from buying a contami- nated property. As always, I welcome your comments and con- cerns about the issues. During the session, I can be reached through the toll-free message line in Frankfort at 1-800-372- 7181 or by email at Information on the status of each bill is available by calling 1-866-840-2835.
