House to Vote Today on Amanda's Bill
Frankfort, KY – The Kentucky House is poised to vote today on Amanda's Bill, which requires electronic monitoring of some domestic violence offenders. The bill easily cleared a House committee last week, after testimony from Diana Ross, mother of Amanda Ross.
"We recognize that nothing we can do will bring back Amanda. We find Amanda's Bill to be a common sense approach to enhance the ability of other victims to find needed protections," she says.
Amanda Ross was gunned down last September outside her Lexington townhome. Accused of her murder is former House member Steve Nunn, who remains incarcerated.
