ACT NOW INDIANA: Click to support a resolution ending the state of emergency in Indiana!

The reasons to lift restrictions on individuals and business are numerous and well documented.

Our Stand

  • Since declaring a state of health emergency March 6, 2020, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has been acting outside of the authority granted to him by the state’s constitution. He has abused his authority by not only keeping Hoosiers in a continued state of emergency, but by implementing various orders that carry fines and penalties under the law when he has no legal authority to do so.
  • Governor Holcomb signed an executive order on January 30, 2021 extending Indiana’s state of emergency through March 1, 2021. This is the eleventh time that he has renewed the state’s health emergency declaration.
  • Indiana state representative Curt Nisly, along with representatives Bruce Borders and John Jacob,  have introduced HCR 15, a resolution to effectively end the state of emergency in Indiana. Ending the state of emergency will finally allow Hoosiers to return to their normal lives while using commonsense measures.
  • The governor’s response to coronavirus has been far more harmful than the virus itself; the policies he has invoked have led to an exponential rise in suicides, alcohol and substance abuse, child abuse, domestic violence and mental health crises; the refusal of “non-essential” medical attention to those seeking care; and countless Hoosiers being forced to die alone, inflicting suffering on both the patients and their family members. Additionally,  thousands of business have permanently closed, making a devastating impact on individuals’ lives as well as the Indiana economy.
  • We’re urging all Hoosiers to stand up for their rights to live without government restrictions after a year long state of emergency! Click now to send a pre-drafted, customizable email to Speaker of the House Todd Huston to urge him to take up the resolution and vote YES on this important matter. The email, which will also go to your local Indiana legislators, asks 1) representatives to contact Nisly so they can be added as an author on the resolution and 2) for senators to ask Nisly to be named as a resolution sponsor after it passes the house.

Act Now

Since declaring a state of emergency on March 6, 2020, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has been acting outside of his state-granted constitutional authority. Indiana state representative Curt Nisly, along with representatives Bruce Borders and John Jacob, filed  HCR 15, a resolution to effectively end Indiana’s state of emergency. The Governor signed an executive order on January 30, 2021 extending the state of emergency through March 1, 2021. Ending the state of emergency will finally allow Hoosiers to return to their normal lives. Expert, Dr. Peter Breggin, has said that a society that continues as normal as possible will endure crisis the best.

Since March of last year, Governor Holcomb has implemented numerous executive orders, some carrying penalties and fines and treated as enforceable under the law. According to Article 3 of the Indiana Constitution, only the Indiana legislature can write Indiana laws, regardless of Indiana Code. Article 3, Section 1 of the Indiana Constitution makes it clear that no person charged with official duties under a single branch of government shall exercise any of the functions of the other unless the Constitution specifically says that they can.

The governor’s declaration of emergency — followed by numerous orders closing non-essential businesses, limiting the capacity of businesses, closing and restricting schools and public functions — have created immeasurable economic, psychological and physical damage to Indiana families. Most of these families were also deprived of due process in the course of the unending emergency declaration. Poverty, mental health problems, substance abuse, child abuse and domestic violence have sharply increased as a direct result of the governor’s overreaching orders. The governor’s response to the virus has been far more detrimental to Hoosiers than the virus itself.

It’s time for Hoosiers to stand up for their constitutional rights! Simply click below to send a pre-drafted, customizable email to the speaker of the house urging him to take up the resolution and to vote YES! The email will also go to your local Indiana legislators so they can ask to be added as an author on the resolution and named as a resolution sponsor after it passes the House.
