The leaders of the Indiana House and Senate say they believe the courts will eventually decide the constitutionality of legislation that would allow lawmakers to call a special session.
HB 1123 would allow the legislature to call a special session to deal with the Governor’s emergency powers.
However, Governor Eric Holcomb says the state constitution only gives him that authority. He also said this week he would veto the bill if it passed.
House Speaker Todd Huston and Senate President Pro Tempore Rod Bray both told the media today they expect the courts to have the final say.
