    This bill does not ban detecting!

    At present the regulations specifically prohibit all detecting in KY state parks. This bill would allow it in "improved" areas.

    That is the intent of it. I can see that it may not be worded quite right now that I look at it from a different angle.

    I have addressed this with the people behind the bill. That would be the group from Louisville who have been fighting a ban in the city parks. I will let you know what I find out.
