Five Things To Watch For During Legislative Veto Session

The Missouri General Assembly’s veto session, which begins Wednesday, generally shuffles into the background during an election year. While legislators could have very busy day (or two), the unrest in Ferguson has sucked up most of the state’s political oxygen this year.

To be sure, none of the issues that could be debated this week have a direct connection to Ferguson. But Gov. Jay Nixon spent time that he would have used to defend his vetoes dealing with the aftermath of Michael Brown’s death. He also encountered plenty of criticism from some Democrats, including lawmakers who may be needed to prevent veto overrides.

All these things could affect what happens this week. Even though some professional political aggregators may not approve, here are five things to watch out for when the veto session is gaveled into session.
