TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Nathan Lee, husband of murder victim Denise Amber Lee, is being honored today for his work in 911 reform.

Thanks in part to Lee's efforts, a new 911 bill was recently implemented. It requires 911 operators to take part in a training course and pass an exam.

Denise Amber Lee was kidnapped and murdered in 2008. It's believed her death may have been avoided if more than one 911 operator had followed trhough on tips about the abduction and killer.
