Governor Calls For Special Session

After last week’s legislature failed to act on the bill that would have given Ball State control of Muncie Community Schools, Governor Eric Holcomb is calling for a special session to complete unfinished business. The special session will take place in May, and lawmakers will discuss giving a 12-million dollar state loan to financially distressed Muncie Community Schools.

Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane of Anderson says the public shouldn’t have to spend $30,000 a day for a special session and goes on to say there is no reason why the Republican supermajority couldn’t get all bills passed on time.
