Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb says he will veto legislation that would give lawmakers the power to call a special session in order to curb his emergency-making powers.
Holcomb made the announcement today at his last scheduled COVID-19 news conference.
The Governor says he understands lawmakers’ concerns, but he doesn’t believe that the constitution allows them to call a special session.
Lawmakers could vote this week on the bill.
In addition to discussing legislation, the Governor also talked about the slight uptick in COVID-19 cases, unemployment, and whether he has been contacted by Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear who has asked Holcomb not to lift the mask mandate.
