INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WHAS11) --  A new state law aimed at protecting Hoosier homebuyers and real estate agents passed through the Indiana legislature Monday night.

The law - passed as House Bill 1141 - puts Indiana State Police in charge of a registry that will list all houses or apartments that have been used to produce meth, until they've been decontaminated.

The list will be open to the public and the law goes into effect July 1.

The law calls for a house or apartment to be added to the meth lab registry website 180 or more days after it was reported to the police. That gives the owner time to decontaminate the property before it goes on the list. The listing must then be removed within 90 days of decontamination.
