Staats votes against Kayden's Law, named after Bucks County girl killed by her father

Yesterday, our representative, my opponent Craig Staats was the only representative from Bucks County to vote against Kayden’s Law, a bill to protect children in child custody situations. Mind boggling. The bill is named for a seven-year old girl in Bucks County who was killed by her father during an unsupervised visitation. In spite of known risks, the court ordered the unsupervised visits. After brutally killing the child, the father left a note on her body, "You all get what you deserve." Kayden's Law establishes common sense measures to put the well being of the child first in custody decisions. The measure passed the Senate unanimously and by a large majority in the House. Staats voted against.
