Sonny is going to call for a Special Session. He will have to actually transmit the veto back to the House, which could promptly vote to override the veto and then the Senate would be absolutely forced to vote on an override — they couldn’t dicker with the rules this time.
Should they do that?
What about because so much stuff was put in the 2008 budget. Is there stuff now in the 2007 Supplemental that is no longer needed, making the preferred solution a whole new process?
From what I’m hearing there is a movement in the House to override the veto and go home — saving taxpayers a lot of money — the special session will cost a minimum of $225,000.00 for 5 days, according to Rep. Davis and others.
So, override or redo?
[UPDATED by Erick:] The Senate Press Office tells me that the calculated cost would be $48,415.00 per day, or for a five day special session, $242,075.00. Going back to Rep. Davis’s post, it’s clear I misread him. He did say “for 5 days” and not “per day.” My apologies for the error.
