Veto override poll results

House Speaker Rebecca Lockhart announced today in conjunction with Senate President Wayne Niederhauser that there will not be a veto override session in 2014.

“The House of Representatives feels that the issues at hand can be addressed in the next general session. We appreciate that the governor evaluated and agreed with 99.5 percent of the legislation we passed this year,” the Speaker said.

The House poll returned a result of 40 opposed to an override session and 34 in favor. There is currently a vacancy in House District 7, accounting for the short count.
