Statement from State Sen. Jim Merritt

Indiana State Sen. Jim Merritt (R-Indianapolis) made the following statement today regarding the recent signing of House Enrolled Act 1406:

STATE HOUSE (June 5, 2017) – “I am grateful for Gov. Holcomb not only supporting our fight against the heroin epidemic that is plaguing our communities, but being a true advocate and champion of this issue. The governor’s signing of this bill into law sends a strong message to those who are fueling this scourge that dealing heroin will result in a stiff punishment. I look forward to working with Gov. Holcomb as we continue to attack this issue with a strategy of prevention, enforcement and treatment.”
