Indiana's Truck Seat Belt Bill Still in Limbo

April 19, 2007

House members in Indiana recently overwhelmingly voted against sending a bill to the governor requiring all passengers in every vehicle – including pickup trucks – to wear seat belts, The Journal Gazette (Ft. Wayne, Ind.) reports. The 65-34 vote to defeat the proposed concurrence doesn’t kill the bill, but rather sends it to the conference committee for further negotiation.The legislation would have closed a loophole exempting vehicles registered as trucks from Indiana’s mandatory seat-belt law.The bill also would have required passengers in the back seats of all vehicles to buckle up.According to The Journal Gazette, the House had inserted a provision that would count pickups as passenger vehicles in the formula that distributes local road and street money.
