INDIANAPOLIS | While the General Assembly is required by law to adjourn on or before Monday, legislators may be back at the Statehouse not long after.

House and Senate leaders have set May 23 for the Legislature's "technical session," a one-day meeting used to resolve typographical errors in pending laws or to override a governor's veto.

The technical session is rarely held but may be needed this year if Republican Gov. Mike Pence vetoes the 2014-15 state budget should he not get his 10 percent income tax cut.

Without a budget law state government could not spend any money starting July 1.

A simple majority vote by both chambers enacts a law rejected by the governor.
