No veto session

There will be no veto session at the state capitol. Louisiana's senators voted 26-13 against the session, even though advocates for the developmentally disabled were calling for one.
 
Governor Jindal used his line-item veto power to cut six-million dollars in funding to help disabled individuals receive home and community based services. 

A veto session is automatic after every legislative session, unless lawmakers cancel it. It takes a majority vote in either the House or Senate to cancel one. Legislative leaders were pushing against a veto session.
 
Political Analyst Bernie Pinsonat says if lawmakers restored funding to disabled services, cuts would be made elsewhere, upsetting another group of people.
 
There's never been a veto session under the state's current constitution.
