Louisiana legislators set to count votes on veto session

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Lawmakers will tally the votes Thursday to find out if Louisiana will have its first ever veto session.

Advocacy groups are pushing for it because they hope money lost through Gov. Bobby Jindal's line item vetoes can be restored.

According to political analysts, the chance of a veto session is slim.

Even if it were to happen, two-thirds of members in both the House and Senate would have to vote to override Jindal's actions.
