Indiana Cancels Special Legislative Session
Indiana lawmakers canceled the one-day special session scheduled for November 29, and Gov. Eric Holcomb has extended the COVID-19 emergency.
The session’s agenda, ending the public health emergency, has been delayed to the January legislative session.
The Indiana Supreme Court decided to hear Gov. Holcomb’s challenge to House Enrolled Act 1123, permitting the Legislature to call itself into special session.
Oral arguments are scheduled in April after the Legislature ends its session on March 14, 2022.
If the General Assembly called itself into a special session, any laws passed could be subject to a constitutional challenge.
