Indiana employers won't be allowed to ask workers about guns and ammunition that they might have in their vehicles under a bill that Gov. Mitch Daniels has signed into law.
The new law also will prevent businesses from requiring employees with weapons to park in separate areas. Supporters say the provisions are needed because some businesses were making such requirements after a law took effect last year that barred employers from prohibiting worker from having weapons in their vehicles on company parking lots.
It passed both the House and Senate by wide margins, but some legislators said it was wrong to decide that individual gun rights trump employers' property rights.
The new law takes effect in July.
