Indiana Supreme Court Upholds Governor's Authority

(Indianapolis, IN) - Indiana legislators fought the law, and the law won.


Last year, the Indiana General Assembly passed a law, over the Governor’s veto, authorizing it to call a special session whenever there is a statewide emergency.


The law was a response to Governor Eric Holcomb's efforts in dealing with the COVD-19 pandemic, during which he issued nearly 70 executive orders. Lawmakers wanted more power to intervene during public health emergencies in particular.


On Friday, the Indiana Supreme Court unanimously ruled the law to be in violation of the state Constitution.
