Governor’s Intended Vetoes Unlikely to Spur Special Legislative Session

Hawaii State Legislature Logo

Earlier this week, the Governor 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 that it does not appear at this time that 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.
