Not enough support for Ky. HB-61 - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

Not enough support for Ky. HB-61

Posted: Updated:

A bill that would replace the current hardship license system with an ignition interlock licensing system in Kentucky has been withdrawn.

14 News found out that Kentucky House Bill 61 did not have enough support for the bill to pass.

A Kentucky woman fought to pass the bill after her son, who was a Henderson Firefighter, was killed by a drunk driver.

Friday marked the two year anniversary of the death of Henderson Firefighter Jonathan Coomes.

Jonathan was driving on U.S. 60 near Spotsville in 2012 when Albert Williams crossed the center line and hit him.

Officials say Jonathan died almost instantly.

Jonathan's mother says she is going to continue fighting for stricter drunk driving laws.
