“There is only one purpose for extending this session; and that so the Democratic Majority will be in a position to override Governor Linda Lingles veto of tax measures. I oppose this extension, Mr. Speaker; and I believe we should allow Governor Lingle to have her chance to veto measures and we should live with that result. The taxes on are people are going to be very arduous and I dont like us to set-up this body to set forth an override of her veto, ” said Representative Cynthia Thielen.

A few minutes later on the floor Democratic Representative Karl Rhodes said,”‘ I just what to say, if the Governor doesn’t veto the bills (referring to increasing the taxes) we can go sine die on Thursday.”

“Bingo, Mr. Speaker, Bingo that is exactly the point there is no question why his extension is being requested and pushed through by the Democratic Majority,” said Representative Cynthia Thielen.
