147th General Assembly
Senate Bill # 116 w/SA 1

Primary Sponsor: Cloutier Additional Sponsor(s):    Sen. Townsend & Sen. Hall-Long Rep. Keeley & Rep. Barbieri & Rep. Mulrooney
CoSponsors: Sens. Blevins, Henry, Lavelle, Peterson, Pettyjohn, Poore, Sokola, Venables, McDowell; Reps. Bolden, Kowalko, Osienski, Paradee, Ramone
Introduced on : 06/06/2013
Long Title:AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 16 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO SEEKING HELP FOR AN ALCOHOL OR DRUG OVERDOSE OR OTHER LIFE THREATENING MEDICAL EMERGENCY
Synopsis:No person who suffers an alcohol or drug overdose or other life threatening condition should die because of fear of criminal charges. It is within Delaware’s best interests to encourage reporting dangerous situations where they occur as not only does it save lives, but it also allows those persons saved to seek the treatment and assistance needed to regain a healthy lifestyle and be productive citizens and neighbors. This Act shall be known as the Kristen L. Jackson & John M. Perkins, Jr. Law. On January 31, 2012 Kristen L. Jackson passed away at the age of 23 years old. On May 5, 2011, John M. Perkins, Jr. passed away at the age of 30 years old. If the Good Samaritan 911 Law had been in effect the outcome may have been different. We hope in passing this law that it will save other parents from the pain their parents have endured.
