On Tuesday the Senate is scheduled to hear testimony on HB 270, a bill that would grant immunity to someone who calls for help during a drug overdose.

To get immunity, the person calling 911 must provide care for the person who overdosed until help arrives.  The bill only covers drug overdoses, not alcohol overdoses.
