But this year, Governor Steve Beshear allocated funds for the registry in the budget. Representative Ruth Ann Palumbo is the bill&rsquo;s sponsor, and has supported the idea for the past several years. The measure would list anyone convicted of elder abuse on the new registry, which Palumbo says is key.<br /> Thu, 15 Mar 2012 13:23:18 +0000 Kenny Colston (KPR) 17260 at http://wkms.org Lawmakers Consider Adult Abuse Registry
