INDIANA (WFIE) - Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has vetoed a Senate Act aimed at limiting the power of local health departments.

The Act would have taken many of the responsibilities of the health department, and put them in the hands of county officials.

In his veto, the Governor credits health officials with Indiana’s ability to weather the pandemic this far.
