Gov. Eric Holcomb announced he will call a special legislative session after a chaotic finish to the 2018 legislative session that let a couple of his priorities die without a vote.
The governor said he wants lawmakers to address what he described as several urgent issues that failed to receive votes before the clock ran out Wednesday on the regular session.
Those issues include a funding boost for school safety, providing Muncie Community School Corporation with a one-time $12 million loan and matching the state's tax code with the federal tax reform changes
Those issues, Holcomb said, can't wait until next year's legislative session.
"It is what it is. We ran out of time," Holcomb said. "But the beauty of our system is we can fix this."
