Journal Categories

On the evening of the last day of the 2007 session, the “Boni” bill finally passed, named for Boni Frederick, the western Kentucky social worker murdered last year after she took a child on what was to have been a final home visit with the mother. The legislation includes funding for centers where supervised visitation can take place more safely, upgrading security at child welfare offices and funding to hire up to 80 additional social workers over the next year.
