The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Pennsylvania General Assembly is considering legislation that would grant amnesty to underage drinkers who contact the police or emergency medical services in an effort “to help a friend or acquaintance with a life-threatening, alcohol-related illness.”  While the law would protect underage drinkers who call for help, it also requires that the persons give their name and information to the responders, that they “they believe they are the first to alert emergency authorities,” and that they stay with the person needing help until the emergency responders arrive.
