Several New Laws Will Start In Indiana On Friday
Friday, July 1, 2022

INDIANAPOLIS - Several new state laws go in effect today, July 1st, in the Hoosier state.

Most of them will not effect your day-to-day life, but there are a few that will have an immediate impact on a majority of Indiana residents. 

First, Indiana residents no longer have to own a permit to carry a handgun. Those wishing to receive a permit or license can still do so. People still must be at least 18-years-old, legally living in the United States, and clean of any federal or state offenses punishable by more than one year in order to own a handgun.

Another law will have a 15 percent sales tax placed on some vape products. The change is to make sure cartridges are taxed at the same rate as other vaping products.
