Rokita, Holcomb latest over the state’s new emergency powers law

Indiana’s Supreme Court is not stepping into the battle over the state’s new emergency powers law.

The high court has dismissed Attorney General Todd Rokita’s emergency request to halt the governor’s lawsuit over the new law.

The governor is suing the legislature, claiming the new law that limits his powers during a state emergency is an unconstitutional power grab.

The Supreme Court declined Rokita’s request, but the justices are still waiting on a non-emergency request from Rokita to stop the lawsuit until November.

November is when lawmakers will wrap up their session for the year.
