House, Senate to override Crist leadership fund veto tomorrowby Dara Kam | March 23rd, 2011
Senate President Mike Haridopolos made a last-minute change to tomorrow’s floor session, adding a 4 p.m. session to the Senate calendar Wednesday afternoon.
The Senate will override at least one of Gov. Charlie Crist’s vetoes during the late afternoon session – HB 1207, legislation that would revive so-called leadership funds, strengthening the hand of House and Senate leaders from both parties in raising campaign cash. Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, sponsored the legislation. The House is expected to override the veto earlier in the day.
Both chambers could also override Crist’s veto of HB 7103, a measure that allows owners of properties with an agricultural exemption to retain the tax break regardless of the sales price.
The House is expected to veto them earlier in the day.
