Pa. Lawmaker Looks Into 'Kate Plus 8' Work Permits

Wednesday, 14 Jul 2010 09:28 AM

A Pennsylvania state lawmaker is questioning the legality of work permits issued to Kate Gosselin's sextuplets for the reality show "Kate Plus 8."

Rep. Thomas Murt says state law allows children under 7 to work in movies, but not television. Gosselin's sextuplets are 6.

Murt asked for an explanation in letters sent Tuesday to the state attorney general and labor secretary.

State labor officials said previously that TV producers should have obtained child work permits for the TLC show's predecessor, "Jon & Kate Plus 8." But no penalties were imposed.

Spokesmen for the attorney general's office and labor secretary did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
