IN General Assembly Overrides Veto of HEA 1546

Share this post

Members of the Indiana House of Representatives voted 68 to 23 today to override Governor Mike Pence's veto of House Enrolled Act 1546, a measure that retroactively legalizes a tax increase and the revenues collected in Pulaski and Jackson Counties. The Governor's Communications Director says Governor Pence regrets the veto was not upheld and stands by his decision, adding he believes that when Hoosiers pay taxes that are not owed, they should be offered relief. House Speaker Brian Bosma says while they appreciate the concerns expressed by the Governor, the issue demanded an immediate solution. According to the press release, the veto would have required over one-thousand employers in the two counties to make mid-year adjustments to their payrolls. In addition, since the two counties need to pay for the ongoing costs of operating the jail, losing funding could put jail operations in jeopardy.
