Lawmakers to review issue over child's playhouse

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Lawmakers will consider a measure that could help a Lexington toddler with cerebral palsy in a fight with a homeowners association to keep a therapeutic playhouse in his backyard.

The House Local Government Committee is scheduled to vote on legislation Wednesday that would allow 3-year-old Cooper Veloudis to keep the playhouse that was recommended by his physical therapist to refine motor skills.

Tiffiney Veloudis, the child's mother, told reporters last month that her family unintentionally ran afoul of the local homeowners association's rules by building the playhouse. But she said it has helped her son so much, she really wants to keep it.

Lawmakers could arrange for that under a bill they've already dubbed "Cooper's Law."
