During the 2011 Texas Legislative Session, a new law was passed commonly
referred to as the 911 Lifeline Law. This law states that "there is no penalty
for consumption or possession of alcohol by a minor if the minor was the first
person to request emergency medical assistance in response to the possible
alcohol overdose of the minor or another person, and remained on the scene
until the medical assistance arrived, and cooperated with medical assistance
and law enforcement personnel."[Alcoholic Beverage Code §§ 106.04, 106.05]
Is this similar to what you are asking about?

Subject: [big12conductdir] Medical Amnesty
Hello Fellow Big 12 Colleagues,
I am excited that each of you have decided to join our listserv. Here in West
Virginia, medical amnesty legislation was passed this past year. I have formed
a working group here on campus to review how we are employing medical amnesty.
Once this passed, prior to my arrival on campus, the Office of General Counsel
added language regarding medical amnesty to our code of conduct. I am planning
to make some tweaks to this but prior to making these changes, I would
appreciate any insights that you might offer.
Can you please share the following:
* Does your state have medical amnesty?
* Are medical amnesty cases handled in any special way? Please Explain
* Do these cases result in a student disciplinary record?
* Are this cases managed by student conduct professionals on campus or
* Do you have special letter templates that you use for medical amnesty
cases if you do not charge them under your code of conduct?
* Please share another other relevant information related to medical amnesty
