FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - So called "pay to play" contracts are over in the city of Fort Wayne.
Tuesday night, city council voted 6-3 to overrule Mayor Tom Henry's veto on the ordinance.
This means that people that donate more than $2,000 to a political campaign isn't allowed to bid for contracts for city business.
The new law applies to service contracts, such as engineers.
Mayor Henry vetoed the ordinance last week because he felt it was unconstitutional.
