Representatives push for session to override governor's vetoes

Tonight on 9News at 5:  It's only the first week of summer, but first responders say they've gotten at least 15 calls this week alone for heat-related illness, and the number is climbing each week.  WAFB's Kelsey Davis will have more on how to stay cool if you're going to be outdoors.

Legislators are receiving forms in the mail that they need to return to prevent a veto override session that would start July 16th.  A veto session hasn't happened recently, but some representatives want to change that.  WAFB's Greg Meriwether will have more tonight on 9News at 6.
