Measure to provide equal constitutional protections for crime victims, which was approved unanimously in 2018, enters second legislative session
Via Ky Forward:
2018 was a milestone year for crime victims’ rights in Kentucky thanks to courageous legislators, determined advocates and hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians. Marsy’s Law was the first bill to pass in the General Assembly and then went to the ballot winning support from 63% of Kentucky voters.
2019 has brought a whirlwind of activity for Marsy's Law for Wisconsin's grassroots coalition. For all of you that have been following along with our efforts to strengthen the rights of Wisconsin crime victims, you'll know that this was a big month for our bipartisan legislation, and January has brought some huge successes – but also a small disappointment.
Second consideration of bipartisan victims’ rights legislation clears legislative committees, available for scheduling before full Senate and Assembly
