INDIANAPOLIS | The Republican-controlled General Assembly will meet June 12 for a one-day technical session to consider overriding a veto issued by Republican Gov. Mike Pence.
Pence said he rejected House Enrolled Act 1546 because the Legislature should not retroactively authorize an income tax hike in Pulaski and Jackson counties.
House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, said the taxes, which pay for loans used to build county jails, have been continuously collected at the higher rates and without retroactive authorization the counties could default on their bonds.
A simple majority vote by both chambers is needed to enact a law over the governor's veto.
