Legislation that would bolster Kentucky's booster seat laws passed the House last week, but it didn't get the support of one local lawmaker.
House Bill 199 would require all children ages 9 and under to ride in a booster seat and would require any child under 57 inches tall to be in a booster seat. Ninth District State Representative Myron Dossett of Pembroke says he believes the legislation goes too far.
Representative Dossett says he heard from some parents who were opposed to the bill and that played a part in his no vote.
State Representative John Tilley, Brent Yonts, Kenny Imes and Martha Jane King voted for the bill, while Represenative Lynn Bechler joined Dossett in voting no. It passed the House on a 65-32 tally and is now in the hands of the Senate.
