Statement on Governor Beshear Signing HB 290 (Child Fatality Review Panel)

By | 2013-03-20T14:19:42+00:00 March 20th, 2013|News Room|

Today marks the final step in placing a panel to review child abuse deaths in Kentucky statute. Governor Beshear signed HB 290 today and we commend him for taking this important step. We reiterate our thanks to Representative Burch and Representative Wayne for championing this bill through the House and Senator Denton for strengthening the bill in the Senate. We also thank the many representatives and senators who supported this bill which will help identify ways to improve the child welfare system to better protect children.

This is the final step for HB 290 and a strong step in protecting children. Now the work really begins and we know the panel has a lot of work to do. We look forward to monitoring the panel’s progress and recognizing the positive steps we anticipate it will take. Today is a true win for kids all across the Commonwealth.
