[r76] Bill to help address Meth problem passes the Senate
Start Date: 3/4/2014Start Time: 3:00 PM
Entry Description
Today, House Bill (HB) 1141 dealing with properties that have been affected by methamphetamine and authored by State Representative Wendy McNamara (R-Mount Vernon), passed through the Senate unanimously.

“I am incredibly excited to see this bill round the final stretch of the legislative process,” said Rep. McNamara. “This piece of legislation is critical to informing the public and providing them with additional knowledge about meth, which continues to be a menace in our communities across Indiana.”

HB 1141 will provide transparency for the public to know whether or not a home has been the site where methamphetamine was either manufactured or dumped. This information will be available to the Indiana State Police, instead of the Criminal Justice Institute, regarding all properties that have been in contact with meth, even those that are already taken off of the public list. 

Buyer’s will be able to see within the buyer’s agreement or realtor’s statement, if a home has a history with meth and whether or not that property has been properly decontaminated. 

This piece of legislation looks to increase the health and safety of Indiana communities as well as increase cooperation and collaboration between state agencies. HB 1141 aims to increase property values by ridding communities of blighted homes and encourage renovations and decontamination of properties affected by meth. 

“This piece of legislation will help ease the burdens on communities and build stronger neighborhoods. Hopefully the transparency this bill provides will bring some peace of mind to home buyers and community members,” said Rep. McNamara.
