  • Holcomb calls for first special session of super majority era
    “It is what it is, we ran out of time. But the beauty of our system is we can fix this. Whatever that cost is, is dwarfed by inaction." - Gov. Eric Holcomb, announcing he will call for a special session to deal with a $6 million school security issue along with dealing with distressed school districts in Muncie and Gary. The short General Assembly session ended in chaos last week after time ran out and a number of bills died due to inaction. House Minority Leader Terry Goodin reacted, saying, “The only reason we are even talking about a special session now is because of the mismanagement demonstrated by those in charge of the Legislature.” Senate President David Long said, “The Senate will support his decision and work diligently to complete the tasks he sets out for us. We will be efficient and focused, and are committed to collaborating with our colleagues in the House and with the governor to act in the best interest of Hoosiers.” House Speaker Brian Bosma added, “I concur with the governor’s assessment that several critical issues require further legislative action. This special session will be limited to those important issues which remained on the table at the close of the regular session. We will continue to work closely with the governor and our Senate colleagues, and we are committed to keeping this session extremely focused and efficient in terms of scope and time.”

  • The book on Pence
    There have been a number of biographies on President Trump, but none on Vice President Mike Pence. That is about to change. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael D'Antonio (“The Truth About Trump”) and former IndyStar and current AP reporter Tom LoBianco have both been in Indiana in recent weeks researching books on the former Hoosier governor. We can expect new information on Pence’s evolution from a failed congressional candidate, think-tank president, his ascent into Capitol Hill leadership, to a governorship and now a heartbeat away. The curtains will be pulled on Pence’s early relationships, finances and modus operandi.

    The rush to publish comes as President Trump acts more erratic in the face of the Russia collusion probe of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. There has been widespread speculation on whether Trump will finish his term, either voluntarily or as the result of scandal. Thus, there is a growing information thirst about a potential “President Pence.”

    The first spate of books center on the frivolous, or the family’s pet rabbit, with daughter Charlotte Pence and wife Karen penning “Marlon Bundo’s A Day in the Life of a Vice President,” and HBO’s John Oliver’s competing “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo.” In the latter, the subject is about gay rabbits falling in love. Is this a great country, or what? - Brian A. Howey, publisher
