FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A national gathering of state legislators has included six Kentucky laws in its list of suggested legislation for the rest of the nation.

The Lexington-based Council of State Governments cited the state's statutes related to altered cash registers, clearing criminal records of victims of forced prostitution and requiring business to report data breaches as models for other lawmakers to use.

The complete list of suggestions will be published in a booklet this winter.

The other Kentucky measures cited provide civil liability protections to engineers and architects who volunteer their services after a natural disaster; allowing victims of domestic violence and sexual assault to remove their addresses from public voter registration rolls; and automatically terminating parental and custody rights of anyone convicted of felony rape when the mother keeps the child.
