The Columbia City Council heard a report on a possible good Samaritan ordinance at its Monday night meeting.

The proposed ordinance would be based on a similar law St. Louis enacted in June. The good Samaritan ordinance would protect people seeking medical care in case of a drug overdose from facing drug charges, as well as those asking for assistance for someone having an overdose.
