INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
The Indiana Senate has followed the Houseís lead and voted to override two
bills that former Gov. Mike Pence vetoed last year.
The Senateís votes
Tuesday mean the bills become law.
One requires the
Indiana Department of Environmental Management to report to the Legislature
when making rules. A statement from Penceís office had emphasized the
importance of IDEM having flexibility to act when necessary.
The other allows
private college police departments to release less on-campus crime
information than public police departments. At the time of Penceís veto, the
University of Notre Dame was involved in a court battle about disclosing
crime investigation records but the court later ruled the schoolís police
department didnít need to release the information.
The House voted to
override the two vetoes last week.
