Ind. Gov't. - First Regular Technical Session of the 118th General Assembly (2013)

"The Senate and House will convene on June 12, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. for the First Regular Technical Session of the 118th General Assembly (2013)."

That is the only information the ILB is currentlyfinding on the special General Assembly page. There are calendars links but no info is posted. Although presumably one or more technical correction bills will be considered, they currently are not available for review.

Governor Pence vetoed three bills in 2013. One of them, HEA 1546, is the reason the technical session was scheduled. The others are SEA 273 (Anesthesiologist assistant licensure) and HEA 1242 (Licensing of diabetes educators).

A veto override begins in the house of origin. So HEA 1546 would be considered first in the House. Only a majority vote is needed to override. Then it moves to the Senate for a second override vote.

Note: IC 1-1-3.1-1 through IC 1-1-3.1-5 govern the effectiveness of acts passed over the governor's veto. IC 1-1-3.1-4(d) provides that if a provision of the act takes effect on a specified date and approval of the act occurs after the specified date the provision takes effect on July 1 next following approval of the act.

The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette has an editorial today on the "unprecedented one-day session."
