DENVER (AP) – Colorado lawmakers say they’re being deluged with emails and letters asking them to make it a crime for failing to report the death of a child within one hour.

The proposed legislation in Colorado and other states is being proposed after Casey Anthony failed to report her daughter missing.

Anthony was indicted on first-degree murder charges following the 2008 death of Caylee and she was acquitted last week.

Rep. Daniel Kagan, a Denver Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee said that people are upset about what happened in Florida, and very anxious that such a thing never happen in Colorado.

    We actually have a petition going on requesting that legislator­s pass Caylee’s law. I have called and emailed our Governor and Senators to make them aware of our still open petition, however I have yet to still hear word back. If you’d like to sign, here is the link. We need all the support we can get so please pass on, We are currently sitting at 295 signatures­.. Thank you.
