Kentucky House Passes Bill Intended to Protect Referees

A bill intended to protect referees is halfway through the Kentucky Legislature.

The Kentucky House of Representatives passed House Bill 65 this week. According to Kentucky Public Radio, the bill would make it “illegal to intimidate sports officials with the intention to get them to alter a decision in a sports contest.”
