DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Firefighter license plates; criminal offenses against firefighters. Establishes the fallen Indiana firefighter license plate and specifies that the plate is not a special group recognition license plate. Repeals a definition of "Indiana firefighter" currently applicable to only one chapter of the motor vehicle law and reenacts that definition to make it applicable throughout the motor vehicle law. Adds part-time, compensated firefighters to the definition of "firefighter" for the purposes of: (1) issuance of license plates concerning firefighters; and (2) criminal law concerning battery against a firefighter, interfering with firefighting and emergency services, and regulation of directing light from a laser pointer against a firefighter. Makes conforming changes.
