The legislature will reconvene for its constitutionally-mandated veto override session next week. Democrats are currently trying to figure out which bills to hold a vote on–but they may not get to all of them. A choice quote:
Derek Slap, a spokesman for the Senate Democrats, says lawmakers have enough votes to override a number of vetoes. But he says how many may depend on whether minority Republicans attempt to wage lengthy debates.
The problem for Democrats is that the veto override sessions can only last up to three days. Therefore parliamentary procedures and lengthy debates can really gum up the works and lead to bills not getting a vote.
Therefore, they’re going to have to prioritize. As many as seven or eight bills may have the votes for an override–it’s just a question of which bills will come up for a vote.
No word on whether Democrats can override the governor’s high-profile veto of two health care bills.
