Kentucky Senate advances bill to add on to the current confidentiality program. This bill will expand the program that is not currently used often by these victims. The hope of this bill is to protect the addresses and identifiable information of domestic abuse victims on government documents. This way, their information is not as accessible to abusers. Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams believes that the government should be doing more to protect these victims.

If this bill becomes law this could begin to change how the government handles confidentiality nationally. Not only domestic abuse victims suffer from the exploitation of confidential information. Citizens can feel very uncomfortable registering to vote or having any other government documentation that can be found with ease. These confidentiality programs could begin to increase voting registration and citizens’ involvement in their society.
