Steven Watkins life ended too prematurely in a fit of anger brought on by the divorce with his wife. Since that time, his mother Penny Watkins has held vigil in an attempt to see her grand daughter. She has, to date, not given up hope. As her fight continues to see her grand daughter, so to does the fight to get the Steven Watkins Memorial Act passed. Initially shot down in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Then shot down on the Senate Floor. But it lives… again… Senator Sullivan, the current sponsor in the Senate, has worked diligently at finding a modification that would be acceptable by the Senate leaving everything intact on the original bill except the provision that removes professional licenses. And it passed, unanimously! Now, the Senate Bill moves to the House, which has already shown strong support for the original bill. So as hard as the opposition digs in, the bill still lives! As does Steven’s memory.
