FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky House has given final passage to a bill that would update the state’s voyeurism law to punish people who take photos up women’s skirts.

The proposal takes aim at a practice known as “upskirting.”

The bill would make it illegal to photograph or videotape an undergarment that isn’t publicly visible.

Voyeurism can result in jail time in Kentucky.

The House voted Thursday to send the measure to Gov. Steve Beshear. The bill previously passed the Senate.

The bill’s supporters said the voyeurism law needs to be expanded to keep up with the increasing use of mobile phones to take photos.

The legislation is Senate Bill 225.
