Lawmakers are back in Richmond this week to consider Governor Terry McAuliffe’s vetoes and amendments. So far, Republicans in the House have been able to overturn two of the governor but they didn't have the votes on the Senate side. So all the governor's vetoes will stand.
Since the General Assembly session ended last month, the governor has been on a tour of sorts — wielding his veto pen and issuing a flurry of press releases. Republican House Majority Leader Kirk Cox opened today's veto session by decrying what he called “Washington-style politics” from McAuliffe.
