Pierce: Republicans Could Pass Anything

After arguments in the Indiana Statehouse ended the legislature’s short session, without accomplishing Governor Eric Holcomb’s priority bills, Holcomb announced a special session of the legislature to convene in May.

Representative Matt Pierce (D-Bloomington) spoke with WFHB News Director Wes Martin about what voters can expect out of the May session. Pierce says Republicans have a super majority in the legislature, meaning they could vote to overrule procedures and pass anything they want.
