Lawmakers Except One Veto Override

SALT LAKE CITY?Legislative leaders of both parties say they expect Wednesday’s veto override session to take no more than an hour.

Gov. Mike Leavitt vetoed nine bills that were passed during the Legislature’s 2002 regular session. In post-session polling, only one appeared to have the votes necessary for an override.

Leaders have repeatedly said they’re not interested in rehashing the other vetoed bills, and while a veto override session can go for five days, lawmakers say they’ll take care of business during a regular monthly interim meeting.

The bill that seems likely for override would change the composition and functions of the Judicial Conduct Commission.
