Schweitzer Says Not Enough Vetoes To Overide His Branding Iron

Gov. Brian Schweitzer says a tally of lawmakers show there won’t be enough votes to override any of his vetoes.

Schweitzer was busy with his veto pen this past legislative session, rejecting 79 bills. The Democrat faced a Legislature dominated by Republicans, and the two sides sparred frequently.

Schweitzer even fashioned a “VETO” hot cattle brand and used it to torch some Republican bills on the front steps of the Capitol. Republicans accused the governor of mocking the legislative process.

Now that the Legislature is adjourned, the state is polling lawmakers on the last of the vetoes issued.

Schweitzer said Thursday his most important veto was striking down a GOP plan to add a surcharge onto worker’s compensation insurance in order to pay off an old debt.
