FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STATEHOUSE (Jan. 20, 2022) – A bill authored by State Sen. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) that would address suicide and drug overdose death reporting passed the Senate today by a vote of 46-1.
• the number of fatalities that occurred in each county;
• the number of fatalities that occurred during each month;
• the age, sex and race of each fatality victim; and
• the method of suicide or overdose.
"We lose too many people each year to suicide and drug overdose," Leising said. “My intent with SB 84 is to make sure we have the information we need to make informed public policy decisions that will combat this issue in a meaningful way and help struggling Indiana residents in the future.”
