No special session expected over vetoes


Earlier this week, Gov. Neil Abercrombie informed the state Legislature of his intent to veto nine bills passed during the 2013 legislative session.

After reviewing the bills and discussions with members of the Legislature, House Speaker Joseph M. Souki and Senate President Donna Mercado Kim announced it does not appear at this time any of the governor’s intended vetoes rise to the level of an override by the Legislature in a Special Session.

The Legislature intends to further review the governor’s rationale for vetoing the bills and will look into addressing his concerns in the coming session.
