Governor Bob Holden has formally called for a special session of the Legislature, to begin at non on Monday, June 2nd. The announcement came during a news conference at the Governor’s Capitol Office. At that time, the Governor vetoed the budget bills funding Social Services, Health and Mental Health, Higher Education, and Elementary and Secondary Education. He did sign budget bills funding such departments and agencies as Agriculture, Corrections, and Public Safety. Holden will address a joint session of the General Assembly next week to outline his proposals for raising revenues he says are needed to balance the budget without further harmful cuts.
