Senate Approves Reflective Tape on Buggies
Amish men from across Kentucky arrived at the Capitol Tuesday to watch the Senate approve a bill allowing them to use reflective tape on their horse-drawn buggies rather than the bright orange triangular signs some object to on religious grounds. The vote passed unanimously and that now goes to the House for consideration. Murray Republican Ken Winters sponsored the measure that allows buggy drivers to use gray or silver reflective tape to outline their vehicles. Winters says tests show the reflective tape makes the buggies visible up to 1,000 feet away.
