Legislation to create a terrorism definition in Kentucky law continues to move through the general assembly.  Members of the House Judiciary Committee easily approved the measure Wednesday.

Bill sponsor, Senator Max Wise, was asked if such a definition didn’t already exist in federal law. “There’s not a universal of terrorism.  Every single agency defines terrorism by what they think is best for them, for prosecution purposes.”
