Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says a string of new legislation passed by state lawmakers will improve life for Hoosiers. A bi-partisan group of lawmakers joined Zoeller in celebrating the new measures Wednesday.

“I want to recognize the work of the lawmakers who come from both parties and both houses and who have worked collaboratively during the session to support areas that our office deals with with public health and safety and  particularly consumer protection,” said Zoeller.

Legislation covers everything from providing Indiana schools with matching grants of up to $50,000 to hire school resource officers to cracking down on touted pain clinics called “pill mills,” to protecting seniors from scams.

“If they can’t get assistance recovering their assets on a local basis the attorney general  underneath this bill clearly has the authority to assist a senior in that particular situation,” said Sen. Tim Lanane (D).

New legislation also provides greater protection against housing foreclosure scams and human trafficking.
