Along with the signing into law the jobs budget and updating Indiana's felony code, Governor Mike Pence also signed four other pieces of legislation into law Wednesday. Two of the four new laws were authored by State Senator Randy Head, of Logansport, one of which, Senate Enrolled Act 345, calls for a model plan for student restraint and seclusion in the rare instance when such actions would be necessary to protect students from harming themselves or others. Senator Head's other bill signed into law, Senate Enrolled Act 343, contains provisions to streamline the process of local government reorganization if political subdivisions choose to merge.
The other two bills signed into law was legislation sponsored by State Senator Vaneta Becker, of Evansville. Senate Enrolled Act 554 improves healthcare access for Indiana's residents by supporting new medical technologies, and requires reimbursing healthcare providers for tele-health and tele-medicine services offered to medicaid recipients. House Enrolled Act 1111 improves first responder action in emergency situations.
