Lawmakers Override Two Vetoes

State lawmakers have overriden two of Governor Perdue's vetoes during a special session today.

Lawmakers are back in session to vote on proposed redistricting maps as they do every ten years. But they're also working to resurrect a number of bills the Governor red-stamped earlier this year.

Earlier today, the House voted to override two of them. One deals with regulatory reform- it would give judges more authority to solve disputes involving state agencies. House lawmakers also overrode a bill that would add rules on to Medicaid providers. The Senate has already overridden both measures, so they will become law.

Other bills are on the override agenda for the week, including a Voter ID measure that would require voters to bring photo identification to the polls, and a measure that seeks to place more restrictions on abortion.
