INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) -- State Representative Chris Campbell is taking a proactive step in child safety.

Tuesday, she requested to have a bill drafted saying children must be in a rear-facing car seat until the age of two.

Indiana does not currently have any law regarding kids in rear-facing car seats.

It has been appointed to legislators who will submit the bill and then Campbell will read it over.

She said it's about protecting Indiana's children.

"It would prevent a lot of deaths in children and keep those babies safer so it seemed like a no-brainer to me.," said Campbell.

No neighboring states have any law requiring children under two to be in a rear-facing car seat or child restraint system.
