The full Indiana Senate will soon consider Senate Bill 227 which aims to expand Indiana‘s 2012 Lifeline Law.
Legislation would provide legal protection for those under 21...and under the influence of alcohol...who call for helpin any type of emergency instead of only those related to alcohol consumption like parties and social events.
State Sen. Jim Merritt says his proposal aims to encourage minors to call for help in life-threatening situations.
