SLIDELL - A Louisiana lawmaker wants to move forward with legislation called "Caylee's Law", which would stiffens penalties on parents when a child is not reported missing in a timely manner.

Sen. A.G. Crowe, R-Slidell, has drafted a bill for the 2012 session in response to the Casey Anthony verdict in Florida.  It makes failure to report the death of a child and intentional communication of false information regarding a missing child felonies.

If passed, offenders would face up to 20 years in prison.

Lawmakers in many states are considering similar legislation in the wake of Anthony's acquittal in the death of her two-year-old daughter, Caylee.
