Legislature Starts Override Preparations

Two legislative committees on Monday began preparing for the special session that will include an override of ex-governor Sarah Palin’s veto of $28 million in federal stimulus money. Legislative staffer Larry Persily told members of the House and Senate Energy Committees that the money that Palin rejected was destined for the State Energy Program which has been in place in its current form since 1996.
