INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana Supreme Court has taken jurisdiction of the appeal in the emergency powers case, bypassing the court of appeals.
A lower court judge ruled the emergency powers law — which allows lawmakers to call their own special session — does not violate the state constitution.
- Holcomb appeals judge’s ruling to uphold Indiana’s emergency powers law
- Judge: Indiana General Assembly can call itself into session during emergencies
- Holcomb vetoes bill curbing governor’s emergency powers
- Indiana lawmakers override governor’s veto on emergency powers measure
Oral arguments are scheduled for April 7.
