Caylee Anthony Case Provokes Two New Bills at Capitol

Two Assembly members are touting bills called "Caylee's Law" after the two-year-old Florida girl whose disappearance wasn't reported for a month.  One measure comes from Republican Paul Cook:

Cook: "Purpose of the bill is - at least as a father and a grandfather - is to correct what I consider a glaring error in the law."

Cook's measure would require parents or guardians to report a missing child under 12 years old within 48 hours - and a death within two hours.  It would make any violation a felony.  Democrat Holly Mitchell's bill makes the age limit 14 and the time limit 24 hours.  Not reporting a death would be a felony.  Not reporting a missing child would be a misdemeanor.

Lawmakers have just started their summer recess - so neither bill can move forward until the legislature reconvenes next month.
