AG Rokita “This Is A HUGE Win For Indiana” After Marion Co. Judge Upholds Indiana Emergency Law Challenged By Gov. Holcomb

A fight for power continues.

The state has been looking into the lingering question of can the General Assembly call itself into special session. After reinstating emergency orders, Governor Holcomb says according to the constitution, only he has the power to call a special session. The General Assembly overrides Holcomb’s veto to giving them power, so now the governor is suing.

A Marion County judge has now ruled that the state constitution does give the General Assembly the authority to determine when and how long they meet.

Attorney General Todd Rokita told Tony Katz this is a “huge win” for Indiana.

“The governor might have an opinion about the constitution…but that doesn’t mean he has a right to sue. The people of Indiana have already paid for their attorney and that’s my office.”
