An Indiana bill laying out when citizens can use force against law enforcement officers has reached Gov. Mitch Daniels' desk, after passing the Senate late Friday.

Earlier this month, the House passed Senate Bill 1, which aims to overturn a controversial State Supreme Court decision in May that ruled people have no right to resist police officers who illegally enter their homes.

Law enforcement groups have said the bill could give people justification for attacking officers, reports WLKY.
