Indiana House Introducing Legislation to End Governor Holcomb’s COVID-19 Emergency Order
Monday, December 6, 2021

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana House of Representatives majority introduced legislation that would end Governor Eric Holcomb’s COVID-19 emergency order, which was put into place at the start of the pandemic.

Holcomb said he would be willing to end the emergency order if the legislature could meet certain criteria. His criteria includes allowing eligible households to receive federal food assistance and Medicaid benefits, as well as complying with the federal government’s recommendation to vaccinate children between ages 5 and 11.

Those provisions are written into the legislation. But Democrats say it’s not the right time to be lifting this order.
