MO Veto Session Approaches; Few Fireworks Expected

Jefferson City, MO – Leaders in the Missouri House and Senate say they expect few fireworks during the veto session that starts Wednesday in Jefferson City.

Lawmakers will meet to consider over-riding measures that were vetoed by the Governor. Last year, they over-rode three of Governor Holden's vetoes. (a record-setting year; the three overrides matched the total number of successful overrides in Missouri since the Civil War.)

Some lawmakers this year hope to reverse the veto of a measure limiting homeowners' rights to sue contractors.

But beyond that, House Speaker Catherine Hanaway says she doesn't see strong sentiment to over-ride any other measures. Over-rides need two-thirds' support in both the House and Senate to become law.
