INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) – A bill in the Indiana Senate would require homes that were once used as methamphetamine labs to be reported online.

According to Indiana State Police, they would control the reporting website. Properties could be taken off the list 90 days after they are cleaned and declared habitable.

State police report roughly 1,800 meth labs were discovered in 2013. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management said contaminated homes pose health hazards.

The proposal passed the House unanimously. The bill moves to the Senate Civil Law Committee.
