TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A special hearing is underway in Tallahassee that could determine whether Florida legislators will pursue additional laws to protect children.
Law enforcement authorities, public defenders and prosecutors were expected to address a committee Monday morning.
The senate committee was formed in the wake of Casey Anthony's acquittal in July on charges she murdered her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Several states have already enacted Caylee's Laws, which require parents to report children missing within 24 hours.
Caylee Anthony was not reported missing until 31 days after she disappeared in the summer of 2008.
