INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHR) — A City-County council commission is considering a proposed needle exchange program in Marion County.

They promised to "fast-track" it after the Marion County Public Health Department Director declared it a "health emergency" last month over the recent spike in Hepatitis C cases.

If it's approved, it would be the biggest needle exchange program in the state.
