LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)-- The Indiana law that encourages young people to seek medical help for those who are heavily intoxicated is set to be broadened.

Republican Senator, Jim Merritt, said the law needs to include immunity for certain alcohol related offenses to those who seek help in all medical emergencies.

The expansion was prompted by talks on college campuses that Merritt hosted with Indiana attorney general, Greg Zoeller.

The current Lifeline Law exempts minors who are under the influence of alcohol from prosecution.
