Legislature 2009: Beyond the Budget

Having made progress on the budget bill, lawmakers are both mulling other topics for the ongoing extended session and weighing in on Gov. Joe Manchin's possible agenda for the special session that will follow.

The Associated Press finds few signs that legislators may try to override the one regular session veto from Manchin that cited policy reasons.

As AP reported earlier, the House and Senate have already fixed 11 vetoed bills and sent them back to the governor. At least six more are poised to follow.

The Charleston Gazette, meanwhile, outlines possible special session bills. The Charleston Daily Mail and The Register-Herald of Beckley each focus on specific potential agenda items.
