BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – State lawmakers return to the Louisiana State Capitol Tuesday to overturn vetoes of bills handed down by the governor.

Any of the 25 regular bills and line-item vetoes in the three other bills that are in the budget can be taken up. The bills range from the budget to criminal justice reforms. But legislators will have to weigh the potential, of how a failed vote, could hurt current campaigns. HB81 and HB466 have also gained some momentum to be brought up during the special session and limit conversations around gender identity and sexual orientation in the classroom.

State Rep. Larry Frieman, R-Abita Springs, said he will bring up his HB188 and plans to vote for any bill that comes up for an override.

“This could be a history making veto override session if the powers that be allow it to happen and the members come. They’re serious and willing to be bold and independent like they claim they are. They need to do that,” he said.

It is up to the author of the bills to determine if they will take a vote. They must get two-thirds of the House and Senate to agree to overturn a veto. Lawmakers have only five days to make any votes.
