Kentucky Senate passes bill restricting nude dancing

FRANKFORT KY (WAVE) - The Kentucky Senate Friday passed a bill that would require nude dancers to remain at least six feet from patrons and perform from an elevated platform, at least 18 inches above the floor.

The vote was 38-0.

The restrictions were attached to an unrelated House bill that dealt with the state's theft by deception law. House Bill 219, sponsored by David Osborne of Jefferson County and Ruth Ann Palumbo of Lexington, passed the House 97-0 on February 26.

The amended bill will now return to the House for concurrence.
