PRESS RELEASE: GOVERNOR HOLCOMB SIGNS LANDMARK LEGISLATION SUPPORTING THE INDEPENDENCE OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

INDIANAPOLIS – On Wednesday, April 24, Governor Eric Holcomb signed legislation recognizing Supported Decision-Making Agreements as a valid way for someone to demonstrate decision-making capacity in Indiana and requires Less Restrictive Alternatives (LRAs), including Supported Decision-Making to be considered before a court will appoint a guardian.

"I was pleased to author Senate Bill 380, which puts Indiana at the forefront of state policy that supports the independence of those with disabilities," said Senator Eric Koch (R- Bedford), author of the legislation. "No longer will guardianships be the only alternative. Our courts will now have more options to ensure that only the least restrictive option is used in situations where our fellow Hoosiers need some extra help. Thank you to Indiana Disability Rights, The Arc of Indiana, and Self-Advocates of Indiana for your help in passing this legislation."
