Gov. Eric Holcomb has issued a proclamation calling for a special session at the Indiana Statehouse.

The session would bring lawmakers back for a one-day session on May 14.

“I’m calling lawmakers back to take action on the critical issues of school safety and federal tax conformity,” Holcomb said in a statement. “And, with sharp focus, I’m confident they can finish this work in a single day.”

Items on Holcomb’s agenda include $5 million for the Indiana Secured School Fund, funding advances of up to $500,000 for schools for school security equipment and a one-time loan of $12 million for Muncie schools to remain open and make improvements.

Other items on the docket include updating the state’s tax code to conform with federal changes and complying with IRS rules to protect taxpayer information.
