Photos: Heather's Law signed today


State Senator Earline Rogers (District 3) joined Governor Daniels for the bill signing of Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) 316, known as “Heather’s Law.”  The new law requires the Department of Education to develop models for Indiana schools to better educate students about the serious reality of dating violence. The law is named for Heather Norris who was brutally murdered by her estranged high school boyfriend in 2007.  Heather’s mother Debbie Norris, the driving force behind the passage of SEA 316,  joined Senator Rogers and Governor Daniels for the bill signing this afternoon. The event was also attended by Heather’s father, Ed Ancelet, and several family members as well as representatives from the Domestic Violence Network, Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Sheltering Wings, Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault, the Children’s Bureau, the Department of Education, local schools and law enforcement.  Read more about Heather’s Law >
