(5-24-22) The Indiana House voted today to override House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1041… the “Transgender Sports Bill” with 67 in favor and 28 against, the Senate followed suit in a vote of 32-to-15. All that was needed was simple majority needed in both chambers to override the veto.
Before the dust had settled the ACLU of Indiana had filed a lawsuit challenging HEA 1041. The suit was filed immediately followed by the legislature’s override of Gov. Eric Holcomb’s veto.
