Clarification & No Veto Override

Posted in Privatization, 80th Legislature, Road Issues, Around The Nation at 11:54 pm by wcnews

I’ve written about a possible line-item veto on SB 792, where Perry could get rid of just the parts of the bill he doesn’t like. After looking over the Texas Constitution a line-item veto only applies to the budget, so that’s a non-issue.

Next from the comments in the previous post a veto override of HB 1892 is not going to happen says Sal Costello:

There will be no override for HB 1892 - I’ve been told there is no will for it and nobody wants to take the lead.

Burka said earlier that the votes weren’t there in the Senate and it looks like he was right. So all the power rests with Perry and he can just veto this one when sessions over and nothing changes.

    I’m going out on a limb here, but this morning I feel that we could get a special session. This would be best.
