INDIANA - A bill that seeks to redefine rape and "consent" in Indiana is headed to the governor's desk.
The legislation stipulates that a person who has sexual intercourse with someone who attempts to "physically, verbally, or by other visible conduct refuse the person's acts" commits rape. That's a change to Indiana’s existing law, which does not provide a definition of consent.
Meanwhile, Indiana Republicans have revived a proposal aimed at repealing the state's handgun permit requirement.
The proposal would allow anyone age 18 or older to carry a handgun in public except for reasons such as having a felony conviction or a dangerous mental illness.
The legislation has drawn strong objections from major police organizations.
