Amanda's Bill Passes House

From Kentucky Public Radio's Tony McVeighLegislation that resulted from last year’s murder of former state worker Amanda Ross has cleared the Kentucky House. Amanda’s Bill, which passed 97-0, now moves to the Senate. House Speaker Greg Stumbo, who sponsored the bill, says it’s personal with him because he knew Amanda Ross.“We’ve known her family and her for a number of years," he says. "She was what all of us would want to see in our daughters. She was well educated. She was vibrant. She was full of ideas. She loved politics. She was just a person you would never believe would have this happen to them.”Amanda Ross was gunned down outside her Lexington townhome on September 11th. Charged with her murder is former House member Steve Nunn, against whom Ross had taken out a domestic violence order. Amanda’s Bill would allow judges to order electronic monitoring of some individuals in domestic violence cases.
