And, from the Evansville Courier & Press:
Bayh introduces bill similar to C.J.'s Law
This is another story on the incredible courage of Kathryn who pushed state lawmakers to adopt C.J.'s Law, requiring new or newly installed mobile homes be equipped with NOAA weather-alert radios in Indiana. Her efforts have not stopped here. Last fall, Rep. Brad Ellsworth, D-Evansville, shepherded a version of C.J.'s Law to passage in the House. On Monday, Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., announced he was introducing a similar bill in the Senate. This bill would enact C.J.'s Home Protection Act nationally. Evansville can be very proud of Kathryn Martin and her work.
