Indiana SEA 24 (enacted March 2018):

The Indiana Academy of Dermatology worked with Senator Liz Brown and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association to introduce a bill that allows children in public and chartered schools in Indiana to bring non-aerosol sunscreen to schools without a physician's prescription and to keep and be able to apply it without having to store in a special location such as a nurse's office. Dr. Lori Sanford and Dr. Carrie Davis testified in favor of the bill. This was signed into law by Governor Holcomb in March 2018.
