BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Legislature has passed a measure that would grant immunity for someone who calls authorities to report a drug overdose.

North Dakota’s House passed the Senate bill on Wednesday.

Republican Sen. Howard Anderson was the primary sponsor of the bill. The retired Turtle Lake pharmacist says there are cases in North Dakota in which drug overdoses have gone unreported for fear of criminal prosecution.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says more than 20 states have some form of a drug immunity law.
