Indiana lawmakers will meet for a special legislative session this May, Gov. Eric Holcomb said Monday morning.  When the regular session ended last week, there were still topics left at the table, such as boosting school safety funding, regulating self-driving cars, and the possibility eliminating handgun license fees.  "We were seconds away and we should not bring new items to the table in a special session," he said. Holcomb said the issue self-driving cars can wait, since it's not an urgent issue that needs to get done right away. Holcomb could not give an estimated cost to the taxpayers for the special session, saying it depends on how long it goes. But it's expected to cost about $30,000 per day.
