HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Governor Ige’s vetoes will stand after the House speaker decided not to hold a special session.
In a memorandum from Speaker Scott Saiki, he cites a “lack of consensus between the House and the Senate” for the decision to not convene a special override session which would’ve been held on July 9.
Some lawmakers have been pushing for the special session after the governor announced a veto on a bill that would’ve issued a new tax on vacation rental listing sites.
There was also push back on his veto of a bill that would have changed the rules against property seizures by police.
The decision to not hold the special section was announced Friday.
