Hume bill increasing jobs for EMT veterans advances to governor

Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS—The House of Representatives recently approved a proposal authored by State Senator Lindel Hume (D-Princeton) that would allow veterans to become certified as emergency medical providers if they have previous medical training.

“I am very pleased to see the General Assembly supporting the passage of this jobs bill,” Sen. Hume said. “This is a common sense approach toward tackling the high unemployment rate among returning servicemen and women.”

Senate Bill (SB) 290 is a top priority for the Indiana Senate Democrats this session. The bill would give the Indiana Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Commission the ability to issue licenses to military service applicants who have prior training in medical service fields and who pass testing requirements.

In addition, veterans who need to complete additional training could be issued temporary licenses by the commission.

After unanimously passing out of the House of Representatives by a vote of 95-0, SB 290 will now move to the governor for his signature. 

Sen. Hume represents Indiana Senate District 48 which includes all or portions of Dubois, Gibson, Knox, Pike, Spencer and Warrick Counties. For more information on Sen. Hume his legislative agenda or other State Senate business call 1-800-382-9467 or visit www.IN.gov/S48.
