STATEHOUSE – “By overriding the veto of HEA 1546, we have resolved a dire situation affecting Pulaski County taxpayers. Honest mistakes happen and what occurred in Pulaski County was the result of a human error. HEA 1546 was crafted to provide a solution to that mistake and by overriding the veto, the Legislature showed its continued commitment to do what is right for taxpayers.”

“HEA 1546 provides a common sense solution to address this human error by extending the funds for the jail and justice center until 2021. Additionally, HEA 1546 includes provisions that benefit the surviving spouses of a deceased veterans as well as providing exemptions for out-of-state businesses helping Hoosiers perform emergency disaster relief. I am pleased that the veto was overridden to address the needs of our community, and I will continue to work to protect Pulaski County taxpayers.”
