Vermont Veto Session Adjourns
Vermont legislature held a veto session on Tuesday, June 20.
During the day-long session, lawmakers successfully overrode five gubernatorial vetoes.
The bills now passed include House Bill 217, which institutes a new payroll tax to raise revenue for child care, and House Bill 305 relating to the Secretary of State’s Office of Professional Regulation.
Notably, lawmakers also overrode the Governor’s veto on the 2024 state budget thanks to a 105-42 vote in the House and a 25-5 vote in the Senate.
The three bills that were vetoed but did not come up for a vote during the override session are eligible to be overridden when the legislature reconvenes in January 2024.
