Gov. Holcomb open to special session after chaotic finale

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb is leaving open the possibility of calling lawmakers back to the Statehouse after this year’s legislative session descended into chaos.

Bickering Republicans blew past Wednesday’s midnight deadline to adjourn without taking up some key bills.

The Republican governor said in an early morning statement that there “still work to be done” and aides say he is open to the idea of calling a special session.

Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma and GOP Senate leader David Long blamed each other for the late night unraveling.

Among the bills that died were measures to boost school safety, allow for driver-less cars, increase gun rights and make adjustments to the tax system.
