    PRO metal detecting bill in KY

    There has been a bill submitted to the KY legislature to permit metal detecting in the state parks. It was submitted by Senator Seum after a meeting with metal detectorist from around Kentucky.

    Please help out with this. Contact the senators and voice your support. You can also let them know that you plan your vacations around metal detecting and you may avoid KY if the bill fails.

    Emails are great but phone calls are even better.

    Here is the senates contact page

    Re: PRO metal detecting bill in KY

    Is there currently laws that DIS-allows md'ing at kentucky state level, and this counters that to allow detecting in SOME of the state level land? Or was/is it previously silent on the issue (barring something morphed from cultural heritage type and/or vegetation rules)?

    If it was previously silent on the issue (left to interpretation from something else that could be morphed), then this would seem like a step down, not a step forward, eh?

    State park regulations specifically prohibit it.
