INDINAPOLIS, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - A vote in the Indiana statehouse today marked the first override of Governor Mike Pence.

The House of Representatives voted 68-23 and the Senate voted 34-12.

The bill addresses a number of tax issues, most notably the "Local Option Income Tax" for Jackson and Pulaski counties, as well as providing benefits for surviving spouses of deceased veterans and making it easier for an out-of-state business to help with disaster emergency relief in Indiana.
