Idaho Lawmakers Move Veto Trump Bill Forward

Benito Baeza

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho lawmakers backed a proposed amendment that could let the Legislature override a governor’s veto almost immediately. Under Dalton Gardens Republican Sen. Steve Vick’s proposal, the Speaker of the House and Senate President Pro Tem must agree a rejected bill deserves a second look in order to compel the governor to call a special session. Currently, the Legislature can’t override a veto if it comes after the session has been adjourned. Some legislators say the change could upset the balance of power and lacks the hurdles to taking down a veto other states put in place. The Senate State Affairs Committee voted Wednesday to send the amendment forward. It needs a two-thirds majority in the Senate and House to get on a ballot next general election.
