State senators voted 32-15 in favor of overriding Gov. Eric Holcomb following the same action by the House earlier in the day, which voted 67-28 in favor of the override.

The Indiana proposal won approval by wide margins in both the House and Senate before Holcomb in March unexpectedly vetoed the measure, saying it did not provide a consistent policy for what he called « fairness in K-12 sports. »
