A Marion County Judge heard arguments Friday morning regarding Governor Eric Holcomb’s lawsuit against the Indiana General Assembly over who has the constitutional power to call a special session.
Indiana lawmakers this past session passed a bill that would give them the authority to call for an emergency session.
The Governor’s attorney Rick Blailklock argued the state constitution gave the Governor sole authority to call a special session.
Tom Fisher, the state’s Solicitor General, argued the legislature also had that authority because the state constitution gives lawmakers the power to set the length and frequency of sessions.
You can hear Blaiklock and Fisher in the Leon-Tailored Audio above. The total run time is five minutes.
