The Indiana Senate on Tuesday passed House Bill 1156 with a vote of 48 to one.

HB 1156 prohibits an employee from being microchipped.

Below is the digest of the bill, which says an employer cannot require the implantation of such a device.

"Prohibition on microchipping employees. Provides that the definition of an "employer" subject to the prohibition against requiring the implantation of devices includes the state or any individual, partnership, association, limited liability company, corporation, business trust, or other governmental entity or political subdivision that has one or more employees."

The bill now heads to Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb's desk for review, where it will either be passed into law or vetoed.
