Proposed Amanda Ross Domestic Violence Prevention Act (Kentucky)

Update: The bill is now HB1 and is here.  The link below no longer works.


Here is the link to the pre-filed bill, BR251, relating to a global positioning monitoring system amendment to Kentucky’s domestic violence statute. It would also permit a petitioner to request that the respondent be prohibited from going to certain designated places requested by the petitioner. Apparently respondents would pay the cost unless unable, in which case approved vendors would bear cost responsibility. The courts would be authorized to conduct a risk assessment to determine whether monitoring would deter future violence.
