Indiana House Speaker Todd Huston, R-Fishers, talks during a news conference in the House chamber on Thursday. The House voted Monday to give the Legislature more authority to intervene during emergencies declared by the governor. Gov. Eric Holcomb has said he will veto the bill, and Huston said he expected courts will ultimately decide whether it is allowed under the state constitution. 

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana legislators voted Monday to give themselves more authority to intervene during emergencies declared by the governor.

The votes in the Republican-dominated House and Senate will send the bill to GOP Gov. Eric Holcomb, who has said he doesn't believe it is allowed under the state constitution and said last week he would veto it.
