Walorski's legacy includes laws aimed at increasing the safety of Hoosiers

Jackie Walorski worked tirelessly throughout her career to increase the safety of Hoosiers statewide.

She introduced the M.A.X. Strong Bill, which strengthened bus safety laws in Indiana after a horrific crash in Fulton County claimed the lives of three siblings.

Her bill, which became law in 2019, launched a two-year investigation into the best practices for school bus safety and led to the implementation of stop arm cameras, increased penalties for drivers who go around stopped school buses, and more enhanced driver education.

Walorski also helped to pass bipartisan legislation to help fight the opioid crisis, naming the law after fallen Michiana physician Dr. Todd Graham, after he was killed for not prescribing a patient with opioids.

In addition, Walorski spent several years advocating for manufacturing workers in Michiana and celebrated the continued economic growth of the RV industry.
