During this veto override session, the Legislature will convene in its respective chambers to reconsider the vetoed bills. In order to override the veto, a two-thirds vote of all members in each chamber is needed.  

Vetoed bills may also be amended to meet the governor’s objections. Only one reading is required for passage in each chamber.

Once the amended measures are transmitted to the Governor, he has 10 days to act.
