BREMEN — Gov. Mike Pence was in Bremen on Wednesday, July 3, for the ceremonial signing of a pair of laws spearheaded by northern Indiana state legislators.
"These bills I believe will contribute to the safety of our people," said Pence, speaking at the Indiana State Police post in Bremen.
One bill limits the amount of pseudophedrine and ephedrine consumers can purchase to 61.2 grams per year without a doctor's prescription.
The law, authored by State Sen. Carlin Yoder, R-Middlebury, passed during the 2013 legislative session.
The law's intent is to curb methamphetamine production.
"I think this legislation today gives us a new tool to fight the scourge of meth," Pence said.
The second bill, authored by State Rep. Mike Karickhoff, R-Kokomo, makes private the addresses of law enforcement personnel and victims of domestic violence in many property databases open to the public.
That bill also passed in the 2013 session.
Both laws went into effect July 1.
Along with Pence, Karickhoff and Yoder, Bremen Town Council member Heath Thornton, State Rep. Tim Harman, R-Bremen, and State Sen. Ryan Mishler, R-Bremen, attended the event.
