AARP Advocating Change to Indiana's Age Discrimination Statute?

Over the Christmas break, I read an AARP publication that had a brief article on how Indiana's AARP would be advocating changes in Indiana's Age Discrimination Act. I wrote about that law here. I was not able to find anything about this on AARP's web page for Indiana, and so I will rely upon my memory. I recall that the proposals include moving enforcement from the Indiana Department of Labor to the Indiana Civil Rights Commission, and generally giving the law and its enforcement more teeth. Something to keep an eye out for during the short session that starts next month.
