DeLaney statement on veto override

News & Media

INDIANAPOLIS – State Representative Ed DeLaney (D-Indianapolis) released the following statement after the veto override of Senate Bill 5:

“Our 'part-time legislature' reconvened amid a global pandemic not to aid an overtaxed public health system, but instead to add additional undue burdens to local public health officials. While professing 'small-c' conservatism, the Republican supermajority continues to work against their own governor. They will hamstring city and county officials trying to act quickly to save lives. The veto override of Senate Enrolled Act 5 is a sad day for the Indiana General Assembly as Hoosiers continue to die from COVID-19 while inoculations lag.”
