Gail Finney: Bill tries to define discipline

Over the course of the past week, I have received an overwhelming response – both positive and negative – to a particular measure that I introduced during the fifth week of the current legislative session. The measure, which was called by many in the press the “spanking bill,” would clearly define and express corporal discipline in Kansas statute. It would not, however, permit child abuse or expand the current definition of corporal discipline in our state, as was incorrectly reported by some of the national media.
