A recent incident reported in Johnson County to our north illustrates why a change in the state’s lifeline law during this session of the Indiana General Assembly was warranted.

Johnson County sheriff’s deputies busted an underage drinking party in the Center Grove area. An officer found a teen on the floor in the basement in front of a sectional couch.
