ST. LOUIS (9/12/13)--The Missouri Credit Union Association was on hand to monitor any activity when state legislators reconvened Wednesday in Jefferson City for the 2013 veto session.
"This veto session is a great opportunity for us to meet with lawmakers, to further enhance our relationships and discuss issues important to our credit unions across the state," said David Kent, MCUA director of state legislative affairs (Missouri Difference Sept. 11).
Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed 29 bills passed by the Missouri General Assembly, and all 29 bills are expected to come up for a veto override vote. A two-thirds majority is required in both the Missouri House of Representatives and Missouri Senate to override the governor's veto.
No bill affecting credit unions is scheduled for debate during the veto session.
Under the Missouri constitution, veto sessions may last up to 10 calendar days. However, this veto session is only expected to last only two days, and ends today.
