Speaker Say's Memo to House Members on No Special Session to Override Vetoed Bills

Today House Speaker Calvin Say sent a memo to all House members about the decision not to call the House of Representatives into special session to override Governor Linda Lingle's vetoes.

In the memo, Speaker Say notes that "the legislature had good justification for passing them (bills)," but through discussion with the House majority members he concluded that "no absolute imperative or exigent reason exists to override any of the vetoes of the bills on the list.."

The memo explains in detail the four reasons why the bills did not warrant an override and gives special mention to the two education bills (HB2377 and HB2376) for an appointed Board of Education.

You can read, share and link to the memo here.
