A Kentucky House panel has approved legislation aimed at preventing abuse of people living in adult care facilities.

The measure would require the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to create and maintain a statewide registry of people convicted of adult abuse.

The measure would also prohibit long-term care facilities from employing those appearing on the list.

Rep. Ruth Ann Palumbo, a Democrat from Lexington, is the bill's sponsor. She said the bill has been in the works for several years and is finally enjoying bipartisan support.

The measure passed unanimously out of the House Health and Welfare Committee 14-0 on Thursday. It now moves to the full Kentucky House for consideration.
