No Vetoes To Consider For SD Lawmakers' Veto Day

March 28, 2014, 5:57 AM

No Vetoes To Consider For SD Lawmakers' Veto Day
PIERRE, SD -

A majority of legislators will convene in the South Dakota Capitol for veto day, but there won't be any vetoes for them to consider.

A spokesman for Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he will sign off on all the remaining bills approved by the Legislature this session.

The governor vetoed one bill during the session. It would have allowed Deadwood hotels to raise a nightly tax. Legislators could not revive it.

Overriding a veto requires a two-thirds vote in both chambers. The last day of the legislative session is coined veto day so lawmakers can vote on vetoed bills.

Daugaard's spokesman said the lack of vetoes is a sign of an "amicable session."

At least 18 senators and 36 representatives must meet on Monday to approve the session's final adjournment.
