Committee passes bill to eliminate "R" word

Lawmakers want to eliminate one word from our state's vocabulary.

Senator Kathy Stein is sponsoring a bill to remove the word "retarded' from the Kentucky Revised Statues.

Stein says the "R" word is offensive to a lot of people.

The measure passed by six votes. It now goes to the full senate.
