State Senator Jim Merritt is proposing a change to Indiana’s current Lifeline Law, which encourages young Hoosiers to call for help in alcohol-related emergencies.
The change will broaden the law by offering immunity for certain alcohol-related offenses to Good Samaritans who seek help in all medical emergencies.
Merritt said the idea for the change resulted from discussions during his statewide tour promoting the law on college campuses.
