Holcomb Shelves Rental Bill

Indiana’s governor vetoes a Republican-backed bill that would have blocked cities from regulating rental properties, which opponents say threatens existing local protections for tenants in several communities around the state. Eric Holcomb said in a veto letter the bill’s language was overly broad, citing a provision that would’ve prohibited any local rules on landlord-tenant relationships beyond state law. He added economic circumstances have changed significantly with the coronavirus outbreak since lawmakers voted on the bill, back on March 11th.
