INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana lawmakers will return to Indianapolis on Monday, May 10, to consider overriding a bill vetoed earlier by Gov. Eric Holcomb that would shift control away from county health experts when considering restrictions during a health emergency.
Senate and House leaders announced Wednesday, May 5, that the one-day meeting will be held Monday.
The announcements said that lawmakers could take up the bill vetoed Tuesday by Holcomb that would give local elected officials the power to block county or city public health orders issued during emergencies.
Republicans have supermajorities in both the Senate and House. A vote to override requires a simple majority of support to be successful.
