WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - This month is National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness month and state lawmakers are traveling the state and educating students on the Lifeline Law.
The law says an underage drinker won't be prosecuted if he or she calls for emergency medical help for a friend who is also underage and has been drinking.
Attorney General Greg Zoeller says students should make sure their friends know about the law.
"This is a message that has to go out from students to other students," said Zoeller.
"They're not going to listen to me, but they will listen to their friends who talk about the law. It's something that students need to pay attention to and they need to be the leaders."
State Senator Jim Merritt (R-31), who is the author of the law, also spoke at Tuesday's event. The event was hosted by the Purdue Student Government and was held in the Purdue Memorial Union.
The law originated as a Purdue University policy and was signed into law by then-Governor Mitch Daniels last year.
Inventions were built by Purdue mechanical engineering students for a final class project.
U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly has traveled around the state throughout the week talking with workers at automotive plants.
A man wanted for burglary and theft has been found thanks to an anonymous tip.
