Today marks the start of the third week of the special legislative session brought about by Governor Holden’s veto of four budget bills. The House and Senate have both approved their own re-vamped versions of the legislation. A House-Senate conference must now iron out the differences. Senate Floor Leader Michael Gibbons of Kirkwood says it will be late this week, at the earliest, before the Legislature will be able to send the re-done budget bills back to the Governor. Once he receives the bills, the Governor will have the option of accepting or vetoing any or all of them. A veto means lawmakers would have to once again return to work at the State Capitol.
