Lawmakers in the Indiana House have voted to override Governor Eric Holcomb’s 2020 veto of a bill regarding landlord and tenant disputes, putting the measure into law.

Senate Bill 148, passed by the 2020 General Assembly, prevents individual cities from taking action on landlord and tenant matters, including expedited evictions and regulating rental properties.

Last year, the state Senate voted 29-19 in favor of a House-Senate agreement on the bill, which the House later approved 64-32, before the legislative session adjourned March 12. The Republican governor vetoed the measure on March 25, citing the emerging coronavirus pandemic as one concern.

Both the House and Senate have Republican supermajorities this year, as they did in 2020. The Senate voted to override the veto last week.
