LA Lawmakers Won't Try to Override Jindal's Vetoes

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana lawmakers won't try to
override any of Gov. Bobby Jindal's vetoes from the most recent
legislative session.
A scheduled veto session of the Legislature has been canceled.
Sheila McCant, a spokeswoman for the state House of
Representatives, says a majority of House members voted against
returning to the Capitol for a veto session.
The veto session was automatically set for July 31 when Jindal
rejected bills from the regular legislative session that ended in
June.
A majority written vote of either the House or Senate can scrap
the session.
Neither the House nor Senate would release vote totals Monday,
because the deadline to turn in ballots was Monday by midnight.
Lawmakers have never held a veto session the current state
constitution was enacted in the 1970s.
