No special session this year, lawmakers don't have override votes

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Whatever the governor decides to do, she will get the final word. For only the third time in eight years lawmakers will not hold a special session to override her vetoes, because they don't have the votes.

House Speaker Calvin Say says many of the governor's vetoes have merit and now that state revenues are picking up, some of their earlier concerns aren't as pressing.
