The bill is intended to strengthen Kentucky's seat belt laws two years after an Interstate-65 crash that claimed the lives of a family of 10 Mennonites in a 15-passenger van March 20, 2010.
Members of the Esh family from Cumberland County were killed when a tractor-trailer crossed the median and slammed into their van. The tractor-trailer driver also died in the crash.
If passed, the new law would change the current law which applies only to vans that carry 10 or fewer passengers.
